I don't drink, but a virgin caeser is just as good..

(from CNN News site)

Spice up your Canada Day with a true Canadian Cocktail...

Outside of Canada, order a Caesar and you'll generally get one of two responses: a complete look of confusion, or a puzzled bartender who brings you a salad with your friends' order of martinis. Despite the fact that the Caesar is actually Canada's most popular cocktail, it's not as well known globally as you might expect. But fear not, as Canadians know how to serve this up just right. After all, it's a Canadian creation.
With July 1st around the corner, it's definitely time to start thinking Canadian. The never-ending question of what to order to drink on a sizzling late afternoon is but a celery stick away. Besides the cold brewskies most lean towards on this long weekend, there's good reason to add a little spice to your cocktail hour. That's right, we have our own cocktail in Canada and this is the weekend to make it proud.
The Caesar was invented in 1969 to celebrate the opening of Marco's, a new Italian restaurant in Calgary. Walter Chell, the resident bartender from Montenegro, experimented for months and ultimately came up with a combo of hand-mashed clams, tomato juice, vodka, and Worcestershire sauce, with a dash of salt and pepper. He topped it off with a celery stick for a garnish, and voila. The Caesar came to be.

As the story goes, Motts developed its own version of "clamato" juice and hired Chell to consult and promote the product. Chell later spent some time in South Africa then returned to Canada where he passed away in 1997. Ten years later, I wonder if he ever imagined his concoction would become Canada's #1 selling cocktail, with more than 250 million sold each year!
While there are many variations of this cocktail, you can still catch the true original as it is mixed today with pride at Owl's Nest lounge in the Calgary Westin, Chell's former mixology lab. Otherwise, see below for a classic version.


The Caesar

6 oz. Clamato Juice
1½ oz. Vodka
2 Dashes Tabasco Sauce
2 Dashes Worcestershire Sauce
Celery salt
Freshly Ground Pepper
1 Crisp Celery Stalk

A woman rubbed a lamp, and out popped a genie.
"Do I get three wishes?" the woman asked.
"Nope, I'm a one-wish genie. What will it be?"
"See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting so we can have world peace."
"They've been at war thousands of years. I'm not that good," he said. "What else do you have?"
"Well, I'd love a good man. One who's considerate, loves kids, likes to cook and doesn't watch sports all day."
"Let me see that map again," sighed the genie.
