Bloody Caesar

Recommended Posts

I remember getting one on Getaway about 5 years ago but couldn't get one on Escape 2 years ago. It might depend on the Beverage Manager

We were on the Epic earlier this year and didn't notice the Motts bottle behind the bar until my last day. It will be the first thing i ask for when we sail in February.

awww... bless your heart...

 

a bloody Caeser is similar to a Bloody Mary... vodka based

 

but it uses a concoction called Clamato ( tomato juice and clam broth) sold in Canada by Mott's... (there are other brands, but they are just posing)

 

generally spiced up with Tobasco or Frank's hot sauces... and garnished with (ideally) pickled beans, or other goodies like stuffed olives or stir sticks with pepperettes and cocktail onions... with celery salt around the rim...

 

they are quite good... and native to Canada (Alberta, i think)

You’ll find not all bars will have the Clamato Juice, and none have the rimmer, or horseradish.

Most bartenders will add too much ice, and not enough juice, and give you the tobasco and Worcestershire sauce to add them yourself.

Weve found the best course of action is to befriend your favourite bartender, usually at the pool bar, and he/she will make them the way you like.

one bartender on the Epic added a splash of olive juice from the container for my wife.

They became quite the hit at the pool bar between 11:00 am and noon, with lots of folks trying them.

Agreed.  Not all the bars carry the Clamato juice.  I find the casino bars are a pretty reliable source for a Bloody Caesar on NCL.  I was most recently on the Jade for an October Med cruise and discussed the whole Bloody Caesar thing with the casino bartender.  He said the ships are provisioned only so much Clamato juice and they will often run out if there are many Canadians on-board.   Indeed, one night he advised me he was down to his last bottle of Clamato juice.  I ordered another Caesar very quickly before it ran out!

I'm from Canada and love Caesars.  This is the first time I have ever heard them be called "Bloody" Caesars.  Every menu I've ever ordered off of from Ontario to the East Coast has listed them simply as Caesars.  I've seen them be called the Classic Caesar or the Ultimate Caesar (extra garnishes such as bacon). Curious if adding the word "Bloody" is a Western Canadian thing?

If this is in reply to my question, I know what a Caesar is and I know that it is sometimes referred to as a "Bloody Caesar" (just learned this today) but is it still commonly referred to as a "Bloody" Caesar in Western Canada as it is not in the East?  I am simply just curious.

Just throwing it out there for general knowledge.  After all, who doesn't want to know the provenance of a "Bloody Caesar"   😉

I agree, I'm in Ontario and never heard a Caesar referred to as a Bloody Caesar.

they are an evolution of a Bloody Mary...

 

they have always been a Bloody Caesar where I'm from. (Ontario)

maybe its because im old...

 

Menus dont have unlimited space for the whole name, and people do like to shorten names, so;  Caesars are commonly ordered.

 

try ordering a Spag and Balls at an italian restaurant... youll see what i mean...

Haven bartenders know how to make proper Ceasars and have horseradish - not sure about rimmer
