The Laughing Stork

Candy’s TGIF Stork Club Cocktail


Candy’s TGIF Stork Club Cocktail


Today’s drink is in honor of Cartoon Stork, who graced The Laughing Stork’s header until his demise during the redesign last week, when he was cruelly axed from the site for being deemed “too cheesy.” (Don’t feel too bad for him.  He used to forward me all kinds of inappropriate e-mails.  And did you ever notice that you could only see one of his hands?  You don’t even want to know what he was doing with the other one.  RUDE.)

THE STORK CLUB COCKTAIL (as suggested by Laughing Stork reader, Cowgirl in the Sand)

  • 1-1/2 oz. Gin
  • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1/4 oz. Lime juice
  • 1 oz. Orange juice (I’m not a huge gin fan, so I added another ounce of OJ.  Did the trick.)
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


Shake all ingredients with ice.  Strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with an orange twist, if you’re fancy like that.  And…

… This one’s for you, Cartoon Stork.  May you be at peace up there in the big wetlands in the sky, where there are surely plenty of fish on which to dine, and hot stork babes to harass.  *Sniff*  *Sniff*

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
