Ok, well there is no actual benzene...

Drink two. I guarantee that will match the book's version.
I did try to match the ingredients listed in the book, Earth Style.

Try this one:
Into a highball type glass (12 oz) put 2-3 large ice cubes
sprinkle a pinch or two of cayenne pepper
add 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
add 1/8 tsp lemon extract
add the following:
1/2 oz Cruzan 151 Rum
1/2 oz Cruzan Rum
1 oz Sapphire Gin
1 oz Creme de Menthe (White)
3/4 oz Jose Gold Tequila

Add equal part Sprite or, even better, fizzy lemonade.
Garnish with an olive of your choice.

Drink this too fast and it will hit you exactly like HHGG tells you: "is like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick."

Bacardi 151 is too harsh for this drink and it will not turn out well.

This was awesome. Almost as strong as the Guide says it is.
