Another option: Use Mott's Extra Spicy Clamato, then you don't need to have Tabasco or Worcestershire on hand. A tasty addition is 2 or 3 shakes of celery salt, and the same of lemon pepper. Add lime juice to taste. Rim with celery salt fro more Canadian authenticity. Other garnishes: dill pickle (my favourite), spanish (green) olive, pickled asparagus shoot, etc.

This is one of my all-time favorite drinks. It's much smoother tasting than a Bloody Mary. When I was in Canada, I remember they added a lemon wedge instead of lime since the lemon compliments seafood (juice) better.

I first encountered this on a train in Canada. A real eye-opener with the spicy sauces! I make it often now.

Where can I order a Bloody Caesar in New York? I can't seem to find a place and it's almost Canada day!
Bloody Caesar Brian's way

The problem is that most folks do not know how to make or even drink this drink. You have to have it spicy and passionate or not at all. Don't be shy to put in at least 1.5 oz of a good mixing Vodka (preferaby Stoly) and make sure to only use the spicy Motts clamato mix. Rim the glass with a lime then celery salt and plenty of it. Use a few drops of Tobasco and a teaspoon of Worchestershire sauce. You have now the best aperatif drink in Canada. From Brian Hannon of Montreal.

I make this cocktail with pepper flavoured vodka, it gives it even an additional spicy kick.

Make sure to add lemon.

Try stirring a small amount of horse radish sauce into the drink. Sounds like an odd combination but if you like seafood/shrimp cocktail sauce, you will love this!

As well as the traditional ingredients, try 1 tsp. of olive juice (not oil).

If you like things hot, a minimum of three shots of Tabasco are required. Avoid the salt and include the celery salt, with a garnish of cucumber, green bean, shrimp, jalapeno pepper &/or celery to classify this as healthy drink! Enjoy...I know I always do!
Bloody ceaser recipe

It is really good if u add a couple of tablespoons of dill pickle juice to the vodka & clamato juice.

A more Canadian and much tastier version (at least according to my taste buds) is to use rye instead of vodka. In fact I had been drinking the rye version - which I was introduced to at a football game at St. Mary's - for a couple of years before I asked for a Caesar and got the vodka type. I was startled but not pleased.

Gin is another tasty Caesar option. The Caesar is one of Canada's finer inventions. One is looked at askance ordering one on any American Airline. Huh? Y'all must be from Canada? and they give you a tinned bloody mary which admittedly will do in a pinch. Invented at Westin Hotel, Calgary. The Caesar is the unofficial libation of the Calgary Stampede and the Canadian Oil and Gas Industry. A big fat Garlic olive, a spear of hot pickled asparagus or a hot green bean are now great substitute for the ubiquitous flaccid celery stick. Bullseye BBQ sauce or Horseradish can jazz it up a bit as well.

I've started adding wasabi powder to my caesar's now too (basicly horsradish but it mixes better) to add extra kick and a great taste.

Out here in Winnipeg we just add about 1 parts clamato to about 4 parts beer....great for fishing at 8 in the morning.

1 part clamato to 4 parts beer is a red eye, not a caesar.
I wasn't aware this is a Canadian drink. Awesome.

BEST DRINK EVER INVENTED

This has been, bar none, my favorite cocktail drink form many years. It takes a certain knack to make a good Caesar ~ no pansies! Extra spicy is the way to go. When adding your ingredients, think of adding a bit of the asparagus juice along with the asparagus shoot ~ yummm! Fine ground sea salt is also very good on the rim of the glass.
