The Alberta Caesar

By / Wine + Drinks / June 29th, 2012 / 4

In the lead-up to Canada Day, Mott’s Clamato is commemorating the diversity of our great country from coast-to-coast. The Caesar is a unique – and uniquely Canadian – cocktail, and each Canadian province or territory has its own flavour. Certainly, reaching 145 years is a great milestone to celebrate. This particular cocktail, the Alberta Caesar, reflects the unique features, traditions and ingredients of that province, like Alberta Premium Whisky and beef. This cocktail is particularly fitting since the Caesar was first mixed in Calgary in 1969 by Walter Chell at the Calgary Inn.

To Canadians around the world raising a Caesar this Canada Day, we say: Cheers, Eh!
