Did you know Canada.. It was Calgary bartender Walter Chell, that created the Casear cocktail in 1969.
He experimented for three months, eventually settling on a mixture of hand-mashed clams, tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Tossing in a celery stick for a garnish, Chell called the drink a Bloody Caesar. Chell said his inspiration came from Italy.
It quickly became a popular mixed drink, but remains virtually unknown outside Canada. Surprisingly the Mott's company was independently developing Clamato (a mixture of clam and tomato juices) at the same time the Caesar was invented. Eventually they hired Chell to consult and promote the product and now Motts claims that the Caesar is the most popular mixed drink in Canada, estimating that over 350 million Caesars are consumed every year.
Whether using is as the so called hangover cure or just enjoying a drink I'm sure we've all enjoyed a Casesar or two.
Why not mix some up for Canada Day weekend to celebrate a Canadian made drink!!
