What 'll You Have?

Couldn't resist posting this pic of "The Ancient Bartender." It's a picture of me at the ruins of a tavern in Pompeii. The big holes in the counter are where they used to keep amphorae of wine cool for customers. Mix the local falernium with honey and you have the original classical cocktail known as mulsum. I'm guessing the drink didn't taste much better than the name sounds.
