For Our Canadian Brethren: The Bloody Caesar

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I recently learned about the Bloody Caesar, a cocktail related to the Bloody Mary which replaces the tomato juice with Clamato, a disturbing mix of clam broth and tomato juice.  It sounds odd, but odder still is that the Bloody Caesar is one of Canada's most popular drinks! I swear I'm not making this up.  Check out those links, particularly the one for the Clamato home page, which has a few very entertaining and upbeat songs about their clammy broth.

Well, instead of giving the clam-hand to our odd northern neighbors, I decided it would probably be more interesting to investigate their curious beverage.  I used Monopolowa, real name-brand Clamato, and this recipe:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 4 oz Clamato
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • celery salt
  • lemon wedge
  • pepper to taste
  • celery salt
I was surprised to find that this drink was remarkably refreshing.  It tasted a little lighter than a Bloody Mary and it seems to me that the Canadians are really on to something here!  I never wanted to admit to drinking Clamato.  In fact, I was trying to avoid it forever, but I am now willing to say that I was in error.  With enough vodka, Clamato is indeed drinkable and enjoyable.  I'd recommend that anybody looking for a Bloody Mary give the Bloody Caesar a try next time.
