This restaurant might be known for their oysters but there’s none in this rendition of your favourite drink. Chewies Caesar is comprised of New Amsterdam vodka, fresh horseradish, Clamato, and their super secret blend of spices. The drink is topped with a cajun prawn and Kevin’s bacon. You can try it with Bulleit bourbon, Tanqueray gin, or Olmeca Altos tequila instead.
