The Olympic Ceasar

Bar: Overtime Sports Lounge
Bartender: Ryan Parsons
Cocktail: The Olympic Caesar

Overtime Sports Lounge, in the less-than-one-year that it has been open, has become a home-away-from-home for many Kaohsiung residents. It's jovial, comfortable atmosphere and seemingly effortless familiarity makes it an ideal place to watch sports, enjoy excellent Western food, a few beers and good company. Says co-owner, and co-bartender, Ryan: "We are Canadian owned and operated. Apart from beer, The Caesar must be Canada's favorite drink. It's an institution."

The Caesar (NT$150) could almost be an identical twin of the Bloody Mary, except that it substitutes tomato juice with Clamato Juice, and has a dash of celery salt. It's a nutritious and delicious cocktail with a bit of a bite. An easily acquired taste, it's suitable for both the night before and the morning after. "If not the cause of, it's the best hangover cure apart from surfing," says co-owner Luke. "Back home people are very particular about their Caesars, and we take pride in ours. We even make our own Clamato juice."

Cocktail ingredients:
- Clamato juice
- Vodka (to taste)
- Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
- Tabasco sauce (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- Celery salt
- 1 Pickle
- 1 slice Lemon
