The Caesar Three Ways
Spicy, mild, or meaty?
The Caesar is widely considered the best Canadian cocktail. Lots of provinces have their own origin story of the Caesar, but Calgary may have the best claim to its genesis. Regardless of where the Caesar came from, all Canadians can agree that it is best served in the summer.
Not everyone likes their Caesar the same way—some people like it spicier, while others like an umami flavour. Here are three different recipes for a Caesar that are sure to satisfy every type of palate this summer.
The Spicy Caesar
