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.
We 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’.
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.
Try 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).
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
