Introduction: Spicy Summer Caesar

The Caesar is a classic Canadian cocktail. Invented in Calgary in the late 1960s, this spicy and refreshing drink with vodka and Clamato (tomato and clam juice) is a summer staple on patios across the Great White North.

Our family's version is always a hit with guests. There's no better way to relish the final days of summer than to enjoy one in the sunshine.

Step 1: Ingredients

You'll need the following:

Cocktail

  • highball glass
  • ice
  • 1.5 oz shot of vodka
  • 12 oz Clamato juice (a mix of tomato juice and clam broth)
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 dashes Tabasco sauce
  • salt and pepper

Rim

  • lime wedge or lime juice
  • Celery salt or Caesar rimmer (Caesar rimmer is mostly celery salt with garlic and some other spices)

Garnish

Step 2: Make the Garnishes

A traditional Caesar is garnished with a celery stalk, but nobody likes celery. Everyone loves a meat garnish.*

To make a tasty and attractive garnish, we use salami, cherry tomatoes, and pickled beans.

Slice the salami. Remove any inedible casing.

Put the salami on a bamboo skewer. Add a tomato on top.

Finally, slide a spicy pickled bean onto the skewer.

Cut some lime wedges.

If you are throwing a party, be sure to make your garnishes in advance, before your guests arrive.

*Totally not true. Vegetarians generally don't appreciate meat on their drinks. Vegans wouldn't like it either, but they don't drink Caesars due to the clam juice.

Step 3: Mix and Enjoy

Wet the rim of the glass with lime juice.

Dip the rim in celery salt or Caesar rimmer.

Fill the glass with ice.

Add a 1.5 oz shot of vodka, 2 shakes of Worcestershire sauce and 4 shakes Tabasco.

Top up with Clamato and then add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Garnish with your spicy bean skewer and a lime wedge.
