When is Caeser Day?

It's national caeser day on the 14th May.

The Birth of the Caesar Cocktail

Picture this: it's the 1960s and a Canadian bartender named Walter Chell is on a quest to create a new cocktail. Drawing inspiration from Italy's classic pasta dish, Spaghetti alle Vongole, Chell set out to craft a drink that mirrored the flavors of this tasty dish. After numerous experiments, the Caesar cocktail was born—a sensational blend of vodka, Clamato juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and a sprinkle of spices.

Little did Chell know that his creation would take the world by storm. The Caesar quickly became a beloved drink in Canada, especially during brunches and social gatherings. Over time, different variations emerged, with some people adding horseradish, celery salt, or even bacon as garnish.
