Ultimate Caesar Cocktail

This Ultimate Caesar Cocktail is a total Canadian classic.  It’s Clamato juice based with a hit of vodka and the whole thing gets flavour and spice from ingredients like horseradish, worcestershire sauce and hot sauce.  Like most cocktails, it’s made quickly (in under 5 minutes).  My favourite part? It has a snack built right in! 

Quickie Thursday

Hey everyone!  This is an update on a post I did waaaaay back when.  Being one of my favourite cocktails, I thought it needed a little remodel with pics and write up so….ta da!  Here on Girl Heart Food, every so often (maybe once or twice a month), I’ve decided to have a series called ‘Quickie Thursday’ where I will bring you guys super easy and quick recipes that can be prepared in no time.  With that, there will be just a few pics and the chit chat will be kept to a minimum (no complaints there, I see 😉 ).  It’s a little check in before the weekend to say ‘hi – how’s it goin’?’, ya know?

TASTES CHANGE (TRUE STORY)

In the past, I absolutely did not like vegetable based juices.  However, these days, I love ’em!  Caesar?  Yes, please 🙂 Gimme! Especially, when it’s this Ultimate Caesar Cocktail!  What is something that you didn’t love, but now you do?  Ultimate Caesar Cocktail - girlheartfood.com

Caesar vs bloody mary – what’s the difference anyway?

In case you were wondering what the difference between these two similar drinks (cause they kinda are), the main base of a Caesar is Clamato juice which is basically a pre-made mix combining both tomato and claim juice.  A bloody mary, on the other hand, is tomato juice based.  Don’t like Clamato juice?  No worries!  Make a bloody mary by subbing in tomato juice.

NO BOOZE? NO PROBLEM!

Vodka is a pretty neutral tasting spirit.  If you prefer, you can omit the vodka altogether and have this baby virgin style and it will still be equally delish!  Truthfully, I love the snack served on top of the caesar just as much as the actual drink; both components are pretty awesome!  I love mine extra spicy ’cause that’s how I roll, but you can adjust the hot sauce to your taste if you like it a little milder – I’m not gonna judge!Ultimate Caesar Cocktail - a classic Canadian Cocktail made in under 5 minutes.

Hope you enjoy this Ultimate Caesar Cocktail on Thirsty Thursday, brunch with friends or family or just a random Friday evening spent with your sweetie!

Cheers to a wonderful weekend!

    I totally hear you on the tastes changing thing, Dawn! I used to hate veggie juice, too, but now I love it. In fact, I’ll sometimes get bloody mary mix on a plane (no alcohol…just the mix) and sip on it. Yum! So Caesars. My curling buddies LOVE these, and they often mix up a big batch and then bring a glass out on the ice with them when we play morning games. I’m more on the tomato juice side of things, but I can appreciate a good recipe…and this is a great one! 🙂 Hope you had an awesome weekend, my friend!

    I’ve never tried a Caesar Cocktail before. I’m usually not one for vegetable juices, but now I totally want to try this and see if my tastes have changed, especially if it comes with that snack on top. 😉

    Looking forward to your Quickie Thursday posts, Dawn. Hope you’re having an awesome weekend!

    Thank you for the background on Caesar vs Bloody Mary. I honestly had no idea what the difference is. I used to dislike vegetable based drinks as well but now I’m loving them! Especially when they come with a tasty treat on top 😉 This one has been pinned!!! Have a great weekend my fellow Canuck! XO

    Quickie Thursdays are going to be something I will look forward to after seeing your beautiful post on Bloody Mary’s. Although I have to avoid the Clamato because of my husband’s shellfish allergy, I am looking forward to trying this cocktail again. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    Ohhh, I LOVE the idea of quickie Thursday, Dawn!! When I saw this on IG, I was all like, ummm how did I miss this?!! Quickie Thursday explains it all! 😉 It is true tastes change! Our taste buds are always developing, you can just ask brussels sprouts to verify this for you. Lol, Lord knows I hated them growing up and can’t live without them now! I’m a huge fan of brunch cocktails and this is one of my favorites!! I’m totally digging your snack skewers built in to this libation! Definitely making this on Sunday! Cheers, doll!

      Thank you Cheyanne! Funny how tastes change, isn’t it? For the better, I say, cause if not we’d be missing out on caesars and brussels sprouts and that would be a dang shame! The snack skewers make this one for sure and I always eat extra…hehehe. Hope you enjoy it! xo

    As an expat from Canada, I do miss my weekly Bloody Caesar! Don’t know if you know you guys but Clamato is quite a difficult one to find in Europe:( I like your version with horseradish! Give it an extra kick!

  7. Jolina says:

    I didn’t use to like ceasars but have grown to love ’em. Love your garnishes! I once had a version where there was a huge chunk of lobster meat on top. How can you not love that right? It’s such a fun drink. Hooray for Friday, we made it 🙂 This drink would be perfect. Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Mary says:

    Bloody Mary’s are my jam so this Ultimate Caesar cocktail is right up my alley. I like the idea of Quicky Thursday I never have a lot of time so this is perfect for me. It took me awhile to warm up to vegetable based juices also Dawn, so happy to know that I’m not alone. All the toppings look beautiful and tasty.

  9. Milena | Craft Beering says:

    Yum! My kind of cocktail:) With the Clamato it reminds me of a Michelada a bit. Love the garnish! We used to live next to a small ski area called Arrowhead. Not that great snow wise, but they had Bloody Mary’s with salad like garnish:) and a huge outdoor fire place at the base area, with chairs and blankets. We went a lot:) sometimes didn’t even ski. They need to learn how to make your Canadian beauty! Pinning for later!
