"and drank it off to the health of his dear Lalage"

Lalage is a woman for whom the Roman poet Horace professes his love in "Integer vitae," a famous poem in his ode, Carminum liber primus, published in 23 BC.  Integer vitae begins as a solemn praise of honest living, and ends in a mock-heroic song of love for Lalage.
