National Caesar Day History
National Caesar Day seeks to celebrate the official cocktail drink of Canada, the Caesar. The Caesar is traditionally made with vodka, clamato juice (a brand of sweetened tomato juice concentrate), Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. It typically comes in a salt-rimmed glass garnished with lemon or lime and a stick of celery. The creation of the Caesar is attributed to barkeep Walter Chell. Chell is believed to have invented the drink in 1969 at the Calgary inn.
National Caesar Day was established in 2009 by the mayor of Calgary, David Bronconnier. It is observed annually on the Thursday before the May long weekend.
