Celebrate the 50th Birthday of the Caesar on National Caesar Day – May 16th!

That’s me in the white hat!


That’s me in the white hat!

Once upon a time… I was a bartender on George Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

I learned how to make a mean Caesar, I also learned to love and appreciate a good Caesar, with a robust flavouring of Lee & Perrins.

Then one day in June a few years ago, I posted a photo of my Caesar creation on social media (let’s just say it involved a bit of red wine & smokey bacon!) & won myself a judges seat at the famed, Calgary Stampede Caesar Contest!


Now, if you do not know what a Caesar is, I’ll explain. This cocktail was created in Calgary, Alberta in 1969 and is primarily consumed in Canada, to the tune of 350 million Caesars downed yearly.

A Caesar typically contains vodka, a caesar mix (tomato + clam juice), hot sauce (most often Tabasco sauce), Worcestershire sauce, and is served over ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, and is usually garnished with a stalk of celery and a wedge of lime.
