With all that in mind it isn't too late to lay in a goodly supply of Stregg, the heart-stopping booze of the Bhor.
But where did Streg come from? And even more important - how can you score some?
Hailing from an ice-planet, the Bhor's ancestral enemy was the Streggan, a fierce beast that hunted the Bohr almost into annihilation. Finally, they turned the tide and wiped out the beast entirely, except for a lonely zoo-bound few.
The Bhor love their enemies as much as they hate them, so they named their favorite drink Stregg, in honor of their ancient foes.
The names of the beast and the spirits were inspired by a boozy session the authors’ had at Harry’s Bar in Century City, California. It was after a grueling day marching with their fellow on-strike writers outside the ABC Center. You get thirsty after three hours of yelling things like, "Down With The Network Suits," and "My Agent - Yes! My Partner - Maybe! My Residuals - Never!"
It was at Harry's Bar that we discovered the wonders of Stregga, the Italian liqueur. (It means witch.)
To make Stregg for yourself mix one part Stregg and one part white tequila. It's best served on the rocks.
But save some of that tequila, because the only way to recover from a Stregg hangover is to treat your symptoms with an Agent Orange Cocktail.
That's basically a tequila screwdriver - fresh squeezed orange juice with tequila, instead of vodka.
A Tequila Bloody Mary or three will also do the trick.
