hawkens_drink_by_evion-d62tleo_zpsed5a3aff.jpg

What began as an amusing piece in Evion's sketch, has become a sort of fan brand amongst those at WSRP. I figured it only fitting to add a thread where people can collect any tidbits or made-up "lore" for this humorous and classy beverage.

LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE BEGUN EVION!


To start with, the collection of community slogans!


  • “When did “Something Expensive” become a brand name? It is brilliant!”
  • “I feel like that belongs in an ad campaign, with a snooty BBV “Received Pronunciation” accent”
  • “I expect it tastes bloody awful, hence the scowl, but it's expensive and that's what counts!”
  • “When circumstances force you to coexist in 'civil' setting with Exile, rather than treating with them at the end of a gun, you may have to drink common swill. For all “civilized” occasions, there's Something Expensive”
  • “Something Expensive: Because we're better than you and our drinks cost as much as your house.”
  • “You could be sensible with your money or, you could buy Something Expensive.”
  • “Something Expensive: For the discerning Cassian.”
  • Something Expensive"Because there comes a time every day when, no matter what the question is, the answer is: Something Expensive."
  • "Something expensive, best served pensive"


And Sushi's addition following that!

You know, there should be a Dominion equivalent of James Bond. A fictional agent in holovids who always gets the woman (who then usually dies), gets all the fancy gadgets, dresses snazzily... and his signature drink was 'Something Expensive, shaken with a twist.'

And just like some folks think that Bond's 'shaken, not stirred' is a faux pas, and an improper way to prepare the drink, real connoisseurs of Something Expensive (including, perhaps, a certain scowling agent) feel that this fictional agent has done no favors by popularizing such a wrong way to prepare the drink. ;)

Hawkens... John Hawkens. Shaken not sti- ... Wait do you shake something expensive? Generally that's how you break things.

Hmmm, stirred not shaken? Or perhaps he just scowls it into submission.
