Ask for the quintessentially Canadian concoction known as The Caesar south of the 49th parallel and you’ll most likely be presented with a plate of romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and croutons. But up here in the ‘True North,’ it’s well known as the go-to spicy brunch standard invented in Calgary in 1969 by restaurant manager Walter Chell as a signature drink for the Calgary Inn’s new Italian restaurant.

Here are three takes on the classic Canadian caesar you can try at home:

1. Boulevard Caesar

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz Absolut Vodka
  • 3 dashes Chipotle Tabasco
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • Pinch of Fresh Grated Horseradish
  • 4 oz Walter All-Natural Craft Caesar Mix

Using a mortar and pestle, combine:

  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns

  • 3 Cloves

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker without ice and shake. Rim the glass with crushed chili, black pepper, celery salt and clove. Pour over ice and garnish with a smoked oyster.

Crush the ingredients with mortar and pestle until you have a fine powder. Set aside and use for the rim of your glass.
