In response to Ernest's query ( see comments from last post) about a Caesar, Blue's dislike of clamato and to all other non-Canadians who may never have heard of such a thing, we have decided to post the answers to these very important questions.
1. What is a Caesar?
A Caesar is a very popular cocktail in Canada and in fact according to Wikipedia is often called Canada's official cocktail. It is made of Clamato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce over ice and served in a glass rimmed with celerly salt and garnished with a stick of celery and a slice of lime. It was originally invented in 1969 in Calgary , Alberta, Canada by a bartender named Walter Chell for the opening of a new restarant at The Westin. The original Caesar was made of tomato juice and mashed clams. Clamato juice was then released shortly afterwards by the American Mott's company. A version without vodka is called a"Virgin Caesar".
2. How is a Caesar made?
Well here is the recipe for the Classic Caesar.
