About National Caesar Day
A Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada.
It typically contains vodka, clam broth, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. It is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass (add cayenne pepper for a little kick), typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime. Though there few rules here and bacon, green bean, dill pickle, and asparagus often make an appearance.
The Caesar was invented in 1969 by restaurant manager Walter Chell of the Calgary Inn (today the Westin Hotel) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Chell devised the cocktail after being tasked to create a signature drink for the Calgary Inn's new Italian restaurant.
