The Caesar Cocktail, aka the Canadian Bloody Mary

One of the things that I love about Vancouver is the amount and variety of restaurants and bars you can find in this city. From Mexican to Greek to Indian and Asian cuisines, it is just difficult sometimes to make a decision at dinner time.

People complain about the fact that Canadians don’t have a typical dish (besides poutine, of course!) but what most don’t know is that actually, Canadians can show off their typical drink because it is, from my point of view, a drink to be proud of.

Today I am going to reveal to you the CAESAR!

A Caesar or Bloody Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, clamato (a proprietary blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and it is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime.

It was invented in Calgary, Alberta in 1969 and it quickly became a popular mixed drink within Canada where over 350 million Caesars are consumed annually and it has inspired numerous variants.

Caesar at Score on Davie

You can order a Caesar in every single bar in Vancouver but if you want to take my advice, go find the Score on Davie (1262 Davie St, Vancouver BC V6E 1N3). Say goodbye to the traditional one with celery and the lone pickled bean and try these evolved ones!

If you are more into sharing… you can also go for the “Check mate!”
