The Caesar

Photo from

The Thursday before the Victoria day long weekend (May 2-4, for us canucks!) is National Caesar's Day, the unofficial start to summer.

For the uninitiated, a Ceaser is the "clammy" sister of the  Bloody Mary consisting of vodka, Clamato juice, hot sauce, and worcestershire sauce. The glass is rimmed with celery salt and garnished with a stalk of celery.

You may be thinking "Why?" and "What the heck is clamato juice?" What a very inquisitive group you are! Allow me to save you a google search:
Why?: Walter Chell created the caesar recipe in 1969 as a signature drink for the opening of new Italian restaurant in Calgary. The caesar drink was meant to reflect the flavours of spaghetti alla vongole – spaghetti with clams and tomato sauce. 
What the heck is clamato juice?: A strange mixing of clam and tomato juice that some how hold the whole thing together
