What is a Caesar?

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 tomato 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 here, using our Flaming Caesar fire cider, puts it over the top for me!

Cheers!
