Romanadvoratrelundar II

This subtle twist on a vodka martini is not what you expect – its light flavors and delicate color mask a savory, sophisticated cocktail that is sure to be a hit with martini drinkers and Gallifreyans alike.


2 oz. Vodka

½ oz. Dry Vermouth

¼ oz. Triple Sec

7-8 drops Angostura Bitters

Absinthe rinse

Orange twist

Prepare a chilled, stemmed cocktail glass with an absinthe rinse. Add other liquid ingredients to a shaker filled with ice (DO NOT DASH THE BITTERS! ONLY allow 7-8 DROPS of bitters – the drink should be pale orange in color). Mix ingredients and strain into cocktail glass. Add orange twist and serve.

The 2nd incarnation of Time Lady Romanadvoratrelundar (Romana for short) was portrayed by Lalla Ward. Originally assigned to travel with The Doctor on his assignment to collect the Key to Time, Romana and The Doctor form an unlikely friendship and she requests to continue traveling with him after the assignment is completed. Choosing to take the form of Princess Astra of Atrios (after trying on several other forms), Romana I regenerates in the TARDIS during flight. Smart, capable, and just a little bit feisty, Romana II kept the Doctor on his toes as an intellectual equal and an honest companion as they traveled the stars together. Romana II was in the TARDIS for 2 years, from 1979-1981, and only traveled with the 4th incarnation of The Doctor before choosing to forge a life with K-9 in E-Space rather than return to Gallifrey.
