    A fan emailed us with this info from this episode:

    After watching "Big Man on Mulberry Street" again tonight, I was intrigued... what exactly is a "Vicious Virgin"? So I combed the Internet and found this recipe. I imagine that five of these in a row might require a police officer to check one's pulse:

    Vicious Virgin

    1 oz Dark Rum
    1 oz Light Rum
    oz Cointreau
    oz Lime Juice
    1 tsp sugar

    Blend all ingredients with a 1/2 glass of ice until smooth; pour into a cocktail glass. The Vicious Virgin is her own kind of dangerous - she's not to be confused with her second cousin, The Redheaded Slut (which has different ingredients altogether...).
