As Leonard Nimoy passes today at the age of 83, BourbonBlog.com is proud to feature a cocktail created by mixologist Anthony Caporale, host of the hit Off-Broadway musical comedy The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking.
The name and theme of this cocktail originated from the second season premiere episode of Star Trek titled “Amok Time: (originally appeared on September 15, 1967 as episode #30, production #34). In “Amok Time,” Spock traveled to Vulcan as he was granted his first request for shore-leave in his entire career. Eventually in this episode, T’Pring invoked a physical challenge between Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock.
