Here's another drink to add to your Classical mixology repertoire ... an excerpt from the London Free Press:

For example, he says fans of the traditional Bloody Mary or Caesar can bypass the usual tomato or clamato juice and use mango juice instead. Add that to some basil-infused vodka or spicy Inferno Pepper vodka, and you've got a new variation on an old standby. (O'Neil calls the resulting drink an Octavian, because Octavian was the adopted son of Julius Caesar.)


Ron Janoff scripsit:

Octavian? the mix of flavors sounds a lot more like Antonius than Octavian.... I'm sure the Divine Augustus would have stuck with a white wine spritzer at best....and the inevitable twist of lemon


I always figured Octavian to be a bit of a teetotaler ...
