Cocktail Recipe du Jour: Canada's Bloody Caesar

Posted on April 22, 2015 by Miriam Zelinsky

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



Old Bay

2 Shots of Vodka

Mott's Clamato Juice

Black pepper

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!)
