The Garden Caesar

The ‘Caesar’ was originally created by Canadian Walter Chell, who set out to create a liquid version of ‘spaghetti alle vongole in rosso’  or spaghetti with clams and tomato.

The result consists of: vodka, clam nectar, tomato juice, lime, Worcestershire sauce and celery salt.

IMG_0033We LOVE caesars in my family, which means we can get very creative with our ‘caesar bar’ station when we get together. This garden party theme pays homage to my mom and mother nature, on ‘Mother’s Day’. IMG_0028

The Garden Caesar:

celery salt (for rim)
1/4 lime squeezed
1-2 ounces vodka
splash of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish root, or prepared horseradish
6 ounces tomato juice with clam nectar
1-2 dashes of tabasco sauce

Rim a glass with celery salt. Combine all remaining ingredients in a tall cocktail glass over ice. Garnish with pickle and edible flower.


IMG_0034Try substituting the vodka for tequila or gin, and adding a creative garnish like smoked oysters, chive flowers, strong cheddar, crispy bacon, or home-made pickles (shown from last years garden bounty).IMG_0031

Looking for a simple caesar cocktail? Walter brand caesar mix includes all the seasonings in a “ready to drink” package. Just add your alcohol of choice, salt the rim and add your garnish! 



Now here’s something that often makes people giggle: I DO NOT LIKE TOMATOES! Not at all, not even a bit, but gosh do I love a good caesar! E N J O Y

    Ooo wee! This looks like such a decadent cocktail. I haven’t had a Cesar in absolutely forever. But this recipe post has convinced me to get some ingredients together at home and give it a go! Maybe for the next long weekend. Thanks for sharing. Great pics too!

    The presentation is nice. I don’t take alcohol but the way you have served is impressive. I can serve my mocktail with the salt on the rim. 🙂

    Oh Wow, how about just reading the ingredients and seeing the photo actually gave me a lemony tart taste in my mouth. Boy the mind is an amazing organ. LOL Thanks for the recipe. I envision this tasting really good.


  8. I don’t drink alcohol but i wonder if this could be made non alcoholic as it looks so good!

    I am like you, doesn’t like TOMATOES at all. So this drink – tomato is what I would like? Time to try it this weekend.

    This looks refreshing. Though, I wonder if there is a non-alcoholic version. I am not much of a drinker, but would love to try it one day.

    I would rather go for the non-acoholic type. This looks refreshing
