Bloody Mary

I have the best friends ever.  And I mean E-V-E-R, do you hear me?

Bloody Mary

My girl, Melissa, came over to my house last night and made me this drink.  How cool is that?  And I made it again today, just so I could share it with you all.

Bloody Mary

I tried to make it just like she did, except I used Absolut Peppar Vodka.  Word.

I don’t care what time of the year it is, bloody marys are always in season.  I don’t remember the last time I had one, to tell you the truth.  But I’ll be having another tonight to celebrate Thirsty Thursday…you can bet your bottom dollar on that one.

But let me get one thing out of the way… apparently in Canada this drink is called a Caesar, and it’s considered a Canadian cocktail.   Whatever you want to call it—it’s mighty good!  :-)

Bloody Mary Ingredients

This is how it all went down:  Melissa likes to use Clamato brand juice in her bloody marys.  There was also the vodka, hot sauce, prepared horseradish and lime juice.  Not pictured is the Old Bay Seasoning that was used to rim the glass.  Optional garnishes include Spanish olives, a lime wedge and a celery stick.

So a big shout out to Melissa for turning me on to this to share with you guys for Thirsty Thursday, and for her kindness in being such an awesome friend.  Remember, great true friends are priceless and should be held near and dear.  Bottoms up, friends… cheers to Thirsty Thursday!  :-)

    Hi Amy,
    Sorry to disappoint you but this drink has been around for years. It’s called a Caesar – similar to a bloody mary but made with Clamato juice. Maybe its just a Canadian thing.

    Glad you enjoy them. They are really good with the stick of beef jerky, crispy bacon or a pickled spicy green bean in it. Check out the website – there are a couple different recipes.

    You are right about one thing Caesars (Canadian Bloody Mary) are always in season. :)

    This is actually a Canadian drink, called a caesar! You can substitute the horseradish for a few dashes of worchestershire sauce and tobasco too if you like. Sometimes I use gin instead of vodka… Yummy either way! It’s great you could get Clamato- tonsss of places outside of Canada have never even heard of it.
    Cheers :)

    In Canada, this drink is called a Caesar. We do it a little different: add 6-10 shakes of worcestershire (this is KEY!) and switch out the Old Bay rim with Celery Salt. I personally don’t like horseradish in my Caesars. I have also been known to add a dash of pickle juice. Good Caesars are usually garnished with spicy pickled green beans or pickled asparagus. Oh man, after talking about this, I really feel like having on now.

    Congratulations Amy ! you’ve just become a Canadian, we’ve been drinking these for over thiry years now, it’s called a “Ceasar”

    Try leaving out the horseradish and add a couple good splashes of “Worcestershire Sauce”. The garnish is not optional it’s a must, a lime wedge and a celery stick is what you’ll get in most pubs but a pickled green bean or a pickled asparagus spear puts the drink over the top.

    Clamato makes a rimmer to go along with their Clamato juice which is very good as well.

    I so want to try this. I just looked at the hubs and said “I want to make these!” He just looked back at the TV! He doesn’t share my passion for foot and drink, although he loves to eat it! Love this!
