Guest Bartender Makes: A CEASAR

cesar canadian bloody mary cocktail

This week we have another vintage-loving mama here to share with us a very Canadian cocktail- The Ceasar. I’m really curious to try this one, because I’m a big fan of tomato and spice. Be sure to visit Jill’s newly redesigned website, Lune Vintage, and check out the fabulous vintage stock she has for sale too!

“I have a few go to cocktails, but my favorite evening starter is the Caesar! It’s also a Canadian invented cocktail. Consider it a Bloody Mary with a delicious twist. Can you guess what the secret ingredient is? Well it’s clam juice of course!”

“The main ingredient you will need to make the perfect Canadian Caesar is Mott’s Clamato juice. Since we’re adding our own spice in this recipe  I’d recommend using the original version but it also comes in extra spicy and with horseradish.”

  • 4 oz clamato juice
  • 1 to 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • sea salt
  • peppercorns
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • celery garnish
  • lime wedges
  • ice

Squeeze another lime wedge into the glass and add 4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce and 2 dashes of Tabasco sauce. Fill the glass with ice and add the vodka and clamato juice. Stir up the mixture with a celery stick and add a pinch of peppercorns and salt to the top. There you have it, a classic Canadian drink to start your night off with a kick. Try it, you’ll love it!”

Thanks for sharing, Jill!

    I love Caesars! I like adding celery salt to rim the glasses. When I’m out with friends and I order one, inevitably one of them pipes in with, ‘Darn, I should have had one of those too’.

    Ha! The Ceasar! One of the things I don’t miss from Canada. I’m actually really happy that I can get a Bloody Mary anywhere in the US. Not a fan of Clamato obviously!

    I love Caesars!! My mom always had them when we went out, It was her cocktail of choice. Now, it’s a favourite for me too!

    Caesars are HANDS DOWN my favourite cocktail! Try it with a splash of pickle juice to make it extra tangy! Mmmmm.

    Totally my favourite cocktail. Whenever I visit the states I forget that you guys don’t have them, and try to order one…then I get a bloody mary and am sorely disappointed.
    I like them extra spicy too. Mmmm.
