The Agent Scully Cocktail – An X-Files Inspired Cocktail

Another X-Files inspired cocktail! And this time it is Agent Scully who gets the spotlight!

So I was compiling a list of X-Files recipe and cocktail ideas, and I realized…. WHAT?! Agent Dana Scully didn’t make the list?!?!! NOT COOL!!!

I somehow overlooked our leading lady in my geeky cocktail line-up! Maybe I was too focused on Agent Mulder?? *wink wink nudge nudge* But hey! I will remedy that forthwith! (I like that word.. forthwith.)

So anyway! More on Agent Scully… Enter the sage wisdom of Wikipedia:

FBI Special Agent Dana Scully is a fictional character in the Fox science fiction-supernatural television series The X-Files, played by Gillian Anderson. Scully is an FBI agent and a medical doctor (M.D.), partnered with fellow Special Agent Fox Mulder for the first seven, and the tenth, seasons, and with John Doggett in the eighth and ninth seasons. In the television series, they work out of a cramped basement office at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. to investigate unsolved cases labeled “X-Files”.

TADA!!!! There you have it. So on with the themed boozy drinks!!!!

The Agent Scully Cocktail is a twist on a classic Pink Mojito, but with a little more lemon, and a little more booze! I picked this cocktail because… well, it is red, bright, spunky and to the point.. much like Agent Scully!!

How to Make:

6 mint leaves

1 tsp lemon juice

3 raspberries

2 teaspoons simple syrup

1.5 ounces white rum

.5 ounce of raspberry liqueur

Top off with cranberry juice

Crushed ice

Mint for garnish

Put the mint, lemon juice, raspberries and simple syrup in a highball glass and muddle. Fill the glass to the rim with crushed ice. Add the rum and cranberry juice, then garnish with a mint sprig. Enjoy!


Give it a try and let me know what you think! Be scientific and analytical in your assessment.. it IS the Agent Scully Cocktail, after all! 😉

    I always loved her, she was so relatable and how I wanted to grow up like. Witty, strong and sceptical. And a redhead. Super cool.

    i LOVE the color of this! plus, rum is one of the few spirits i can enjoy. with all that fruit goodness, this wouldn’t taste like booze at all, which is always a plus in my book. 🙂

      Yeah, the cranberry and raspberry make it sweet and juicy, with just the right amount of rum!

    I’m loving the X-Files inspired cocktails Gingi!!! I made “The Deep Throat” last week and it was delicious, and strong lol. Agent Muddler LMAO. What a great way to describe Agent Scully, red, bright, spunky and to the point.

    Love this series of X-Files cocktails, so fun! I was obsessed with Agent Scully when the show was big, she seemed so smart and logical and this is such a great tribute.

      Yeah, she kind of started the whole strong female legal mind / authority figure trend in television in the 90s!

    I was hooked on that show and loved the creativity. I’m in for any drink with raspberries or cranberries and adding liquor never hurts either. Love this!

      Yeah, something about those tart berries that work wonders in a cocktail!!! <3

    You know I can’t drink the alcohol, but boy, does that look purty! Very creative way to play with the fandom. Love it. You need one that can make a play on Scully’s faith, since she’s always wearing her trademark cross. Use Christian Brothers Brandy!

    What a pretty drink! I’m not big on rum, but I bet the raspberries and cranberry juice compliment it well.

    I think I sort of kind of have everything to make these, or at least some sort of pink variation!!!!! Love these X-file cocktails of late!
