how to make a caesar cocktail

Prepare for your holiday to Canada by sipping on a Caesar cocktail, which was first invented at the Calgary Inn in Alberta in 1969. A close relative of the Bloody Mary, the Canadian version includes tomato and clam juice, and may be garnished with anything from a simple stick of celery and a wedge of lime, to pickles, clams, and even bacon! Canada’s official cocktail is celebrated every May on National Caesar Day.

Prep: 5 minutes
Recipe serves: 1


  • 30ml vodka
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 dashes salt and pepper
  • 120ml Motts Clamato Juice
  • 1 stick of celery
  • Lime wedges
  • Celery salt
  • Ice


  • Coat the rim of a glass with lime juice and then roll in celery salt
  • Fill the glass with ice and set aside
  • Add ice, vodka, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and Motts Clamato juice to a mixing glass
  • Pour the juice back and forth into another mixing glass so that it is well combined
