The Caesar is a classic Canadian cocktail invented in 1969 in Alberta, Calgary and hugely popular in Canada. I had my first one when we were up in Vancouver for the Olympics. It is similar to a Bloody Mary, but uses clamato juice rather than tomato juice. The clamato juice contributes a slight sweetness to the beverage and it’s very tasty.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
1 ½ oz. vodka
6 oz. clamato juice
1-2 dashes of Tabasco sauce
1-2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Celery, pickled asparagus, peppers, green olives, pickled carrots, or shrimp (or other garnishes of choice)
Coarse Salt or Celery Salt, for rimming the glass
Rim a class with coarse salt or celery salt. Fill the glass with ice. Add in the vodka, clamato Juice, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with fresh ground pepper to taste. Garnish with the items of your choice or whatever you have on hand.
