How to make a Bloody Caesar Cocktail

‚ÄčIn preparation for National Caesar Day, and our Caesar Competition tomorrow, here is the basic recipe for a Bloody Caesar Cocktail.

Bloody Caesar Cocktail


  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 dash Tabasco sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • Celery Salt
  • Celery stalk
  • Clamato juice


  1. Rim a tall glass with celery salt, then fill glass with ice.
  2. Pour vodka in to glass, then fill the glass with Clamato juice.
  3. Add Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and add celery stalk.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Did you know that the Caesar was invented in Calgary? In 1969, bartender Walter Chell at the Westin hotel was asked to create a signature drink for the opening of a new restaurant named Marco's in the hotel. Walter's new drink was a twist on the popular Bloody Mary- he blended hand-mashed clams, tomato juice, vodka, Worchester sauce and salt and pepper, then garnished it with a celery stick and named it after the Roman Emperor Caesar.

Walter later went on to assist the Mott's company in creating "clamato juice" which is now used in over 350 million Bloody Caesar cocktails a year. Nice!
