I had this Caesar Drink in Kelowna, B.C. 5 years ago. I liked the horseradish in the drink, it gave it that little extra "pezzaz". Have been enjoying the drink ever since.
- 1⁄2 fresh lemon, for rub on glass rim
- 1 teaspoon celery salt, for glass rim rub
- 2 fluid ounces good quality vodka, more if desired
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh horseradish or 1 teaspoon pure prepared horseradish
- 6 fluid ounces mott's Clamato juice (No subsitutes unless you cannot have Clam juice)
- 2 dashes Tabasco sauce (optional) or 2 dashes red hot pepper sauce (optional)
- 1 piece of young celery rib, incluing the leaves (from the middle of the stock)
- Rub lemon around rim of glass.
- Measure celery salt to a flat saucer.
- Turn glass in celery salt to coat rim.
- To the glass, add Vodka, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, horseradish, Clamato juice, Tabasco sauce and stir well to blend.
- Place a young stick of celery, pickled bean or pickled asparagus as a garnish and it is good to chew on.
- Eat and drink slowly.
- Note: A pickled spicy bean or an pickled asparagus spear are also excellent for a garnish in the drink.
- Mott's Clamato juice is available in regular or spicy mix.
One of the best ceasar recipes I've tried. My only adjustment to it is I use limes instead of lemons, and I use a little less horseradish, but that's just based on my preferences. The original recipe is still worth 5 stars.
The Canadians sure know how to make a mean Caesar!
Once I was introduced to the Caesar, I have never gone back. I no longer will order a bloody out as places around here don't stock Clamato juice. It is readily available in the stores so when I'm in the mood, I make my own. I do pepper my own vodka and use it for a spicier drink. Ginsugirl is right. It needs to be embraced as it is so much better with Clamato - cuts down on that thickness that gets to be too much. As a side note for those not sure about the clam - you don't taste it at all. Unless your allergic, give it a shot. I converted the first time.
