Bacchus can keep his wine… Julius Bloody Caesar truly is a divine drink!
Did you know that the Bloody Caesar was a Canadian culinary invention?
In 1969, an Albertan bartender of Italian origin, Walter Chell, wanted to create a cocktail inspired by the Bloody Mary and pasta alle vongole. For weeks, he crushed clams to obtain the perfect balance with tomato juice. He named it in honor of Julius Caesar.
The Bloody Caesar became immensely popular in Canada, where more than 350 million Caesars are consumed each year. In 2009 Parliament named it Canada’s Official Cocktail!
In recent years, National Caesar Day has been celebrated on the Thursday preceding the Victoria Day long weekend.
