There's no denying I'm a huge Bloody Mary fan! So when I went to Montreal over Easter weekend, I was (most) excited about trying as many "Caesars" as I could get my paws on. A Caesar is Canada's version of the Bloody Mary, using Clamato juice as a base instead of regular tomato juice. Although I love clams, I was originally skeeved out about trying bottled tomato juice mixed with some sort of clam juice. It was actually delicious and think I'm subbing Clamato for regular tomato juice when I make my next Bloody. Joe Beef won for the best Caesar. It was spicy and rich and had an oyster, shrimp and cornichon as a garnish – yum!
Here's the recipe! Cheers!
What You'll Need:
Tabasco to taste – 5 to 7 dashes (I use 30)
Worcestershire Sauce – 5 dashes
2 Shots of Vodka
Mott's Clamato Juice
1 tbl spoon of horseradish
What To Do:
1) Rub the lime wedge around the rim of the glass, and dip the glass in Old Bay
2) Add the Tabasco, squeeze of lime, pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, and horseradish to a high ball glass with a little ice. You don't want it to get too watery.
3) Add the vodka
4) Top off with Clamato
5) Garnishes: Cornichons + lime (bonus: lobster claw, shucked oyster and/or shrimp!)
