    Classic Canadian Caesar Cocktail

    May 17, 2018

    If you were asked to name one quintessential Canadian food or drink what would it be? Beavertails? Poutine? Molson Canadian? Nanaimo Bars?

    Mine, without a doubt, would have to be the Classic Caesar. There is nothing quite like it! Invented by Walter Chell in Calgary, Alberta, the Caesar made its debut in 1969 at the opening of the Calgary Inn Restaurant. Inspired by the Italian dish Spaghetti Vongole (which features prominent flavours of clams and tomato), the Caesar was an instant hit and quickly became one of Canada’s favourite drinks!

    In fact, a Caesar was one of the very first drinks I ever ordered at a bar once I was of age! After watching my dad enjoy them every summer at the cottage, it was hard not to become intrigued by this lavish looking drink… the meticulous preparation seemed well worth the prize at the end.

    And wouldn’t you know it, today just happens to be National Caesar Day here in Canada! So whether you are gearing up for a long weekend of camping with friends, picnics in the park, or a relaxing weekend at home, you better make sure there is a Caesar in your hand (it’s the Canadian thing to do!!).

    One of Canada’s favourite cocktails, the Classic Caesar is a drink loved by all! Vibrant flavours of tomato & clam juice are complemented perfectly by the zing of horseradish, Worcestershire & hot sauce. The sky’s the limit when it comes to garnishing a Caesar, but you can’t go wrong with rimmer & a piece of celery!


    1 oz vodka
    4 oz Walter Craft Caesar Mix (Mild)
    Dash of Tabasco
    Dash of Worcestershire
    Fresh lime juice
    Garnish: Slice of lime, dill, pickled beans, a skewer of bacon
    Rim: Lemon, Caesar rimmer


    1. Using a lime wedge, rim a glass with lemon juice. Roll rim in desired Caesar rimmer.
    2. Fill glass with ice, and add vodka, Walter Craft Caesar Mix, Tabasco, and Worcestershire. Stir gently. Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
    3. Garnish as desired. Enjoy!
