Classic Canadian Caesar Recipe
The wildly popular Canadian Caesar, a classic variation on the Bloody Mary made with clam tomato juice, was invented in Canada and is rarely found anywhere else.
I gave this 4 stars because it is a fantastic drink worth making. I am from Calgary, Canada (where the Caesar was born). This is popular in Canada, but know that tomato juice is NOT a substitute for Clamato. This drink is meant to be spicy as well, so beef up the hot pepper sauce (Tabasco is what it SHOULD be made with). As was said in previous reviews, there is no replacement for Lea and Perrins Worcestershire - don't try to substitute - it won't work. Try 2 tablespoons Dill pickle juice, but the clincher is to add a couple of shakes of Montreal Steak Spice. Takes this great drink over the top.
This recipe is a good start, couple of things missing so wonder if this is an American version of a truly Canadian drink or not? Needs to be spiced up a lot more, see the others suggestions. I myself like it to be a bit more spicy. I use the Extra Spicy Clamato Juice, put about 10 shakes of celery salt into the drink, use no other brand of Worcestershire Sauce than Lee & Perrins, (others just don't imitate the original Worcestershire, and yes, I came to Canada from England, close to the county of Worcestershire so take my word for it on this one) .... it is a nice drink if you add a pickled green bean or pickled asparagus in it rather than the celery. The celery is a bit dull for such a nice spicy drink. The lime wedge is a nice garnish, but I add lime juice (about 1 tsp.) to the drink itself as well. Also, I add the ice last, not first, it's easier to stir with the pickle (or celery if you insist) as the stir stick.
There's a little added heat in this Canadian twist on traditional Caesar salad, with hot English mustard and a dash of hot pepper sauce.
Taste the savory Clamato® Bloody Caesar. One of our original recipes.
The garlic croutons that top this classic salad are wonderful, as is the anchovy-infused, very creamy dressing.
If you want to spice up that tomato juice, just use this recipe.
The Caesar salad you love so much at fancy restaurants is surprisingly easy and quick to make at home.
