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!
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
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?
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.
Non Alcoholic Cocktail Option
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!
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!
