I only learned a few weeks ago that 'Clamato' is a portmanteau of 'clam' and 'tomato'. I didn't know clam juice was involved in caesars. I also just don't like caesars very much. It's literally a savoury drink. I'm a beer guy, and if I want a cocktail, I'd like it either sweet or neutral.

Is it me or is a caesar (slightly) viewed as a girl's drink?

There might be -slightly- more women who will order one when they go out -- I think it's the fact that they can kid themselves that they're actually drinking something healthy because there's clamato in it. Oh, and that celery stick. And fewer calories than beer.

Many cocktails still have that "girl drink drunk" reputation. I don't think a caesar is quite there, though.

I never see women order martinis, I wonder why that is.

Another popular "chick" drink: a wine spritzer (wine plus soda). Popular with older women.

...but in all honesty, I've never thought of it as a girls drink, and see a lot guys here drinking them.

I recall (white) wine spritzers being very popular among young women in the 1970s, at places like discos and singles bars. Then, the drink's popularity seemed to die down with the introduction of bottled wine and spirit-based coolers (e.g. Smirnoff Ice and the like). I doubt that today's young women have even heard of such a drink.

The women who drank spritzers in the 1970s would be forty-some years older now, but their tastes might not have changed.

I'll have yours.


Actually, official camping breakfast is beer and Clamato. Specifically Pilsner if you're with anyone from Saskatchewan.
