Here in the United States we are all well aware of what a Bloody Mary is. The dubious weekend morning drink, sometimes to start off the day, other times to help finish off the previous one. But, not too many of us have heard of the Bloody Caesar. Coming to us straight from Canada this popular drink is a definite relative of the Bloody Mary, but with a twist. Lets find out more about it now.
Created in Calgary Alberta, this tomato juice based drink was invented by restauranteur Walter Chell to celebrate the opening of a new Italian restaurant. The drink itself is made with vodka, clamato (tomato juice and clam broth mixture) hot sauce, and worcestershire sauce served over ice with a celery salt rim. Now many of you may be thinking, how is that different from a Bloody Mary, but it all lies in that added clam broth. According to Chell he decided to make this drink for the restaurant because of a popular Venetian dish called the Spaghetti alle vongole, which is tomato sauce and clams. The clamato adds a distinct flavor and a real kick to the drink.
The Bloody Caesar, or just Caesar as it is often referred may not be popular state side, but it is to our neighbors in the great white north. There are over 350 million Caesars consumed annually. So if you want to try out this bloody beverage it’s time to schedule your next trip to Canada.
