To my American and Canadian friends, this is for you😊
The wildly popular Caesar Cocktail was invented in Calgary, Alberta in 1969! It quickly became beloved by Canadians where over 350 million Caesars are consumed annually. It typically contains vodka and Caesar mix (a blend of tomatoe juice and clam broth, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and is served over ice in a large celery salt-rimmed glass. Take a lick of the celery salt and then a drink of the Caesar through the straw.
This is my personal favourite drink! The recipe below, using our Flaming Caesar fire cider, puts it over the top for me!
Caesar the bare bones recipe is all you need
8 oz of Clamato juice (may substitute with Tomatoe juice)
1 oz vodka
1-2 tsp Flaming Caesar Fire Cider (our secret ingredient! See below to make)
Top with any of these classic toppings: Celery stick, olives, pickles, pickled asparagus or beans. Many carnivores even enjoy a meat stick😊. Rim with celery salt. My personal favourite addition in the summer is a straw made with a hollow Lovage stalk. (Lovage plants are available in store or online, at Richter’s Herbs)
