Najpopularniejszą potrawę kanadyjską już poznaliśmy, a co jeśli chodzi o najpopularniejszego drinka w Kanadzie? Niewątpliwie smak jego daje sobie wiele do życzenia. “Caesar” -bo taka jego nazwa - to połączenie sosu Worchestershire , wódki, ostrego sosu (może być tabasco), limonki, soku z małży no i selera do ozdoby. Połączenie dość dziwne…..a jak to smakuje? Sprawdźcie sami.
When you are visiting a different country something you typically don’t consider is the drinking culture until you are in the middle of it. My trip to Japan was alcohol soaked. Because Japanese culture is alcohol soaked. The Japanese always seem so proper and strict in their behaviour, and to an extent this is true - during business hours. But after the blazers come off the alcohol comes out. And they go hard. I went to an international party in Tokyo and I will never forget being asked what Canada’s favourite cocktail was. The Caesar is the cocktail of choice. He asked what it was. So I told him. His response was “that sounds awful.” And truthfully the Caesar does sound terrible. And to many it is an abominiation.
The Caesar is one of the most popular cocktails in Canada. It is a spicy, tangy, and salty drink. There is nothing mild about this cocktail. Like all cocktails there is really no way to do it wrong, but there is a difference between a good caesar and a bad one. To start rim a large glass with caesar rimmer or celery salt in a pinch. Fill your glass with ice. Next use one or two ounces of vodka. And fill the rest of your glass with clam juice. You can use tomato juice, but then it is the American Bloody Mary. If you want a Dirty Caesar (the best kind!) add a few dashes (to your taste) of hot sauce (tobasco usually) and worchestershire sauce. Some people take it even further and add an ounce of lemon juice or pickle juice and few shakes of steak spice. But a Dirty Caesar isn’t done yet. You need a garnish. Usually this is a stalk of celery, pickles, pickled beans or even crispy bacon. It is a savoury masterpiece.
In YouTube videos “Irish People Try Canadian Alcohol” and “Eugene Ranks Popular Cocktails Around The World,” features both Irish and an American alcohol enthusiasts trying this popular cocktail. The responses are not good. One says, “I feel like I’m on fucking fear factor,” and another says, “this is our worst nightmare.” I say don’t knock it till you try it.
