F is for ...

... Fuzzy Banana (always take a banana to a party)

(Image from here.)

  • Okay now, this one was a lot harder.  I looked for cocktails with the word Faceless (for The Faceless Ones - from the fourth season with Patrick Troughton as the Doctor (the 2nd Doctor)). No luck.
  • I looked for just the word "Face" from various episodes with the word in the title.  No luck.
  • I looked for a Father's Day cocktail (for an episode in Series 5, Father's Day).  I got some hits but they were for cocktails to make for dad on Father's Day, not a Father's Day Cocktail.
  • I looked for the word "Fear", again from various episodes.  No luck. 
  • Then First, Four, Fourth, Five, and Fifth (for the 1st, 4th, and 5th doctors).  I did find a Five Points Cocktail.  Recipe here.  But that wasn't quite what I wanted -- and it sounded so weird that I didn't think I would even consider making it.  Not that that is a requirement for this list, but I digress.
  • Then I searched for 42 (another episode).  No luck.

Nevada had suggested the French 75 - in honor of the Girl in the Fireplace, Madame de Pompadour.  and then I found the Fuzzy Banana, which is also a reference to the same episode and the line "Always take a banana to a party...".  So here are recipes for both of those cocktails.
