I am about to change your life as I once hated bloody marys. This is the Canadian version (called a caesar) and just has one major change that will change everything you maybe didn’t like or will add extra things you will like to your bloody mary.
I literally have made this for 143 Americans who like bloody marys and all made the switch over to the caesar. The best thing about the caesar is it is less thick than a bloody mary and has a touch of added salty taste, which typically if you’re drinking this hungover than your body is craving it some added salt.
For those who don’t know a Caesar is a bloody mary that walks on water. It comes without the thick sauce texture of bloody mary mix and adds the addition of a nice salty brine that your body craves after a hangover. Don’t let the Clamato scare you away as there is no fishy or sea taste to Clamato juice.
Side note: I hate when people add extra unnecessary things to my bloody mary or caesar… no i don’t want hard cold bacon nor do I want a slider. In fact I find it quite presumptuous you think I want a slider and keep me from ordering food myself yet adding $3 to the drink I want. Don’t get started on celery you cheap bars out there, no one wants celery so stop being cheap and give us something spicy-pickled.
4 Tips For Making the Best Drink
When making a drink for people and you want them to love the experience you need to appeal to 4 senses. You must make it taste good of course, it needs to have a pleasant aroma thus sometimes adding a herb garnish helps, it should look beautiful clearly and then they must feel a nice ambiance and setting when trying the drink.
I can help you with the first 3 but the ambiance is on you… music, clean up, give them a shot so they are already getting drunk and everything is fun… up to you :).
One AMAZING way to add to your drink ambiance and appeal to all senses is infuse your liquor. Infusing liquor is the greatest lie in drink creation as what sounds extremely impressive is really just you pouring liquor into a jar and adding 1-2 ingredients then letting it sit for 1-7 days… or even 1 hour and just lying to your guests.
Infused liquor makes you look like some planned, smart super-hero that would do anything to host people. It will impress them and has you already 5 steps ahead on appealing to all of the senses.
