ultimate canadian caesar
As Canadians there are many things to be proud of; our beautiful landscape, politeness, maple syrup, ketchup chips, and of course our drink of choice, Caesars! It’s an absolute classic. If there were any drink that embodies a Canadian it’s this one. The ultimate brunch drink because it not only is a great cocktail but it also has a snack built right into the recipe.
We know what you’re thinking, doesn’t a caesar contain clamato juice? Yeah it does, it’s what makes it so great. Unfortunately clamato juice isn’t vegan or vegetarian. We still wanted to have Canada’s drink so we made a vegan version. Complete with all the deliciousness of clamato juice, just without the clams! In case you’re not Canadian, were essentially talking about a Bloody Mary (but better, sorry USA).
This is one of two delicious caesars we made for you today. As it’s Canada we set out to have a mini competition between the two of us – who can make the better caesar. We want you to be the judge. This is the Ultimate Canadian Caesar. Not only is the drink very Canadian, but it features a maple syrup and ketchup chip rim, homemade Timbits (aka donut holes), poutine, vegan bacon, and of course a celery stalk.
Be sure to check out the other caesar – Sweet Chili Heat Caesar! It’s fire-y and delicious. Happy Canada Day friends. Have fun, eat great food, and drink responsibly.
If you are Canadian chances are you're obsessed with Caesars and you definitely know that they're better than Bloody Marys. Sorry not sorry. This is the ultimate Canadian Caesar.

Make a batch of our classic vegan caesar recipe.
Fry up two strips of vegan bacon and set aside.
Add 1 tsp maple syrup (we used whiskey infused maple syrup, but just regular will do) to a shallow dish. Add your ketchup chip crumbs (the Canadian no name chips are vegan) to a second shallow dish. Place the rim of your mason jar in your maple syrup then into your chip crumbs.
To your glasses add in a few cubes of ice, 1 tsp of maple syrup each, and a couple drops of ghost pepper hot sauce. Add your caesar cocktail to each glass.
On a plate make your poutine with your fries, cheese shreds, and hot vegan gravy. Once the cheese has melted a bit, skewer fries onto a bamboo skewer. Skewer about 4 vegan timbits onto a separate bamboo skewer. Make two of each skewers.
Place your poutine skewer into your caesar, along with your timbit skewer, a strip of vegan bacon, and a celery stalk. Enjoy being your ultimate Canadian self.
