The Caesar

We may be known as a nation of beer drinkers—and with good reason—but Canada is also the birthplace the Caesar, a tangy cocktail popular in brunch circles. A Calgary bar manager who had been tasked with creating a signature cocktail for an Italian restaurant invented it in 1969. Walter Chell drew inspiration from a spaghetti and clam dish on the menu, mixing vodka with tomato juice and mashed clams, and seasoning it with Italian oregano and a dash of Worcestershire Sauce. Originally garnished with a stick of celery, it was called the Roman Emperor.
