Here at Future-ish, we love astronomy and we love cocktails. So to prep our fans (and ourselves) for those stellar weekend cocktail conversations, we are pleased to offer a Cocktail Astronomy post on Fridays.

This is definitely going to impress your friends. Did you know NASA has confirmed the existance of over 5,000 exoplanets? They have! One only needs to visit the NASA Expolanets website to learn more about the unique attributes of some of these fascinating new worlds. If you really want to geek out on the details, you can also visit the ever-expanding NASA Exoplanet Archive.

Cocktail Pairing: with so many new worlds to consider, we're taking a different approach on this one. We think this parade of planets deserves a flight of some sort. Whether it's great whiskeys, wines, beers, tequilas, or a row of sample-size boozy shakes, we believe there's knowledge in numbers so a flight is the way to go. Enjoy!
