I’m not a drinker at all so it is very, very rare that I’ll come up with any type of original cocktail. But, apparently, in a pinch, I can do this (even if I’ll never, ever taste it). What inspired this is on a camping trip, a fellow camper nicked my bottle of Lisa’s Giggle Juice,and I came up with this now forever known as Lisa’s Elation Elixir. The Lisa in question is Lisa Meece who runs StarBase Indy, a local science fiction and STEM convention and who happened to be camping in the next tent over.

This is not a heavy alcohol drink as Lisa doesn’t like drinks that are too strong.


  • 2 large shots pineapple juice
  • 1 small shot vodka
  • 1 small shot O2 (O2 is a high end orange liquor; if you don’t have O2 then substitute Grand Marnier or Patron Citron)


  1. In a cocktail glass, put ice.
  2. Combine all ingredients.
  3. Stir.
