12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 2 ~ The Signature Cocktail

12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 2 ~ The Signature Cocktail


 

Now that we’re beautiful let’s party!

 

 

Gathering with friends and family is my absolute favourite part of the

holidays so I’m kicking off this year with one of my favourite tips when

throwing a party. Have a signature cocktail. It cuts down the budget

of stocking a full bar and it allows you to serve one drink really well!

As a proud Canadian I love a Caesar. The great thing about a Caesar is it

can be dressed up in so many ways. It is a personal drink and a Caesar

Bar allows you to customize it any way you like!

 

 

 

 


Here’s what you’ll need…


 

 

 

 


 

Clamato Juice

 


 

Clamato Juice is a National Canadian Treasure!

To all of my American friends you can find this at Costco

and a few other retailers now. It’ll change your Bloody Mary game for ever!

 

 

 

 

 


 

Salty Rim

 


 

This might be my favourite part!

 

 

I like old fashioned Celery Salt but if you click on the photo

you’ll find a great recipe for the perfect Salty Rim!

 


 

Now for the good stuff… Meat

 


 

Bacon

People love it.

It’ll be gone too quickly so make more than you think you’ll need.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Shrimp

Chilled cocktail shrimp are the easiest accompaniment of all.

And they add a little bit of fanciness!

 

 

 

 


 

 

Sliders

 

These are a little more work but they double as an

appetizer as well as being a huge crowd favourite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Pickled

 


 

A Caesar needs something pickled.

Even if it’s just a dash of pickle juice.

Here are my fav pickled accompaniments…

 

 

 


 

A Dill

 

The classic. For the traditionalist.

 

 

 

 


 

 

A Carrot

For a sweeter option…

 

 

 

 

 


 

A Spicy Green Bean

For the spice Lovers!

 

 

 

 


 

An Asparagus

Another Classic!

 

 

 

 


 

Traditional Garnishes

 


 

Celery

 

 

 


 

Olives + Cheese

 

Cube your favourite hard cheese and a green olive on a skewer so

your guests can add both in one easy step!

 

 

 

 


 

Lemons + Limes

 

 

Every great drink needs a little citrus…

 

 

 


 

Spice it Up!

 


 

Worchester

 

 


 

Tobasco

 

 


 

Horseradish

 


 

Last but not least Pick Your Poison.

Add your favourite unflavoured Vodka and Voila!

I prefer my Caesar without alcohol and that’s what makes a

Caesar bar the perfect option for your party because it’s a

crowd pleaser for both drinkers and non-drinkers alike!

 


 

 

Drink responsibility and have a great time partying this holiday season!

Eat, Drink and be Merry!
