National Caesar Day


About National Caesar Day

Date: May 14th and July 1st - Canada Day - good day to celebrate this Canadian classic

Never heard of The Caesar? It's actually one of Canada's favorite cocktails. Here's a little history to wet your taste buds.
The Caesar, also known as the Bloody Caesar, was developed to celebrate the opening of Marco's Italian restaurant at the Calgary Inn in 1969. Bartender and mixologist Walter Chell spent three months creating this new cocktail. Challenged to create a beverage that went well with Mediterranean food, Walter Chell mixed flavors of Spaghetti Vongole (spaghetti with clams), with lime, Worcestershire sauce and celery salt to create this new unique taste.
The original Caesar cocktail recipe was similar to the already popular Bloody Mary cocktail, with one major exception – the addition of mashed clams blended into the tomato juice.
