The Caesar - just in case you aren't Canadian - the drink.... read on
So here I was looking through a magazine the other day and I stumble across an article that says Caesars (the drink - NOT the salad!) were invented here in Canada. Isn't that fabulous, thought I. The world must envy our Canadian genius. But then I read on - --- and it says that they do not drink this anywhere other than here. I said - PARDON? How can this be? I do not believe it, so me being me I research it. Low and behold I have had it confirmed from two sources on separate continents that Caesars (in all their glory) are not served there.
Hence forward - it is the mission of my blog to bring the mighty Caesar to the world. One small problem is that Motts Clamato isn't available world wide... but maybe I can ship it to you guys in little bottles. (?) We shall see.
The following is a recipe - and though it may sound odd - it is superb and will be life altering.
1.0 part vodka 5.0 parts Clamato (if you MUST substitute Tomato juice here - but it isn't nearly as yummy)
Directions: Fill a glass with ice, add Clamato juice mixed with vodka 1/5, mix in Worcestershire sauce 3 drops, Tabasco to taste, dip the glass in lime (or lemon) juice and dip it into celery salt put a celery stalk into the glass -- enjoy!!
PS - Let me just say that this is really not like a bloody Mary. It's better. A bloody Mary is like the trailer trash cousin.
