This drink, the Bloody Caesar has many symbolic relationships to ol’ Julius himself.  The salt represents the pain of his wounds when stabbed in the Senate.  The vodka represents the clarity of his thoughts and transparency of his rule. The tomato/clam mixture represents his blood lost in his conquest of land and sea. The Worcestershire, representing his invasion of Britain, and the Tabasco, his long lasting influence, even into the Americas.  The horseradish evokes his bitter loss, and the celery, the enlightenment of his time. For some inexplicable reason, this is the national drink of Canada.Bloody Caesar
