Boo-zho-lay for you, Pigdog reader! Another fine Spocktail
of the week is available for you. And this week's offering is
EXTRA special and fancy, since it celebrates the birthday of
Pigdog's own STAR TWINS!
Our newest Spocktail is a drink that evinces class, style, and sophistication in
medley of flavors and colors. The delectable creation celebrates Pigdog's own
the mystical dynamic duo of Ms. Bunnypenny and
the Mysterious M.L.E..
Chosen from BIRTH to walk the same Path of Fate, the Star Twins are kind of a
combination of Starsky and Hutch meet Audrey Hepburn, Julie Newmar meets
Kung-Fu Grip GI Joe, Princess Grace in a bloody battle with the Dirty Dozen.
The STAR TWIN SPECTACULAR was created as an homage to the pair by gourmet chef
Paolo Giorgio at his world-famous restaurant Sellarre in the Old Town section
of Nice. Giorgio had been having financial troubles stemming from an
over-fondness for bear-fight gambling and a poor ability to judge potential
victors. When he complained bitterly to the Star Twins at a yacht party in
Lexington KY during Derby Week, they offered to perform their rarely-seen piano
torchsinger duet in his restaurant to raise capital.
At a $10,000/plate dinner in Sellare later that month attended by among
others the King of Jordan, Dennis Hopper and Ilona "Ciccolina" Staller, the
guests were held spellbound at the sight of Ms. B. and MLE in full-length
sequined gowns belting out show tunes and performing acts of acrobatics seldom
seen outside of the Chinese circus. As a finale, Bunny ground Princess Caroline
of Monaco's $30,000 black pearl necklace into a fine powder and drank it from a
gallon jug of Giorgio's newly-invented cocktail.
As the applause rang out, Giorgio christened the drink as the "Star Twin
Spectacular" and fell to his
knees in gratitude for saving his business and his life. The Star Twins, of
course, ruffled his hair and sauntered off for the midnight diving on the Cote.
Black pearls are hard to come by, so enjoy this recipe for the slightly-amended
Star Twin Spectacular in the comfort of your own home. Raise a glass for them
tonight, because elegance and adventure are only a spocktail away!
