Canadian Caesar Cocktail

Canada Day is next week and among the fireworks and good food that most Canadians will be celebrating with a beverage or two, mocktail or cocktail. For Hubs and I, besides beer there is nothing more Canadian than a frosty Canadian Caesar. We don’t make the usual vodka Caesar, although those are tasty; Hubs and I prefer our Caesar with Rum but not just any Rum, Bacardi Limon Rum.




At first we thought the use of Rum in a Caesar was blasphemy but upon tying it, we have never looked back; it gives this cocktail an extra twist. Garnishing this drink is up to you; I’ve seen everything from the usual celery stick to a mini burger. Weird. We usually like spicy pickled long beans, a dill pickle or some olives but feeling festive, I garnished this drink with a skewer of red and white grape tomatoes and pickled sour onions. The only thing more Canadian would be adding a slice of candied maple bacon.
