Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the caesar is one of Canada’s most famous cocktails. The “unofficial drink of Canada” is a spicy and salty mixture that is typically made with vodka, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, spices, and Clamato juice. Visitors to Canada may know this drink by another name (Bloody Mary), but the main difference is the addition of Clamato juice.

This Thursday before the May long weekend, Canadians from coast to coast will be coming together for a toast to Canada’s unofficial cocktail for National Caesar Day on Thursday, May 16th.

For both the caesar connoisseur and the uninitiated, these tasty and tangy drinks can vary dramatically from bar to restaurant. So, if you’re looking for an excuse to celebrate with a tall glass of the Canadian classic cocktail, check out one of these fine establishments listed below:
