The Wintertime Caesar

A Caesar to sip on Christmas Day

Since your family might look at you a little funny if you start hitting the whisky first thing Christmas morning, best to hold off until brunch and add a couple ounces to a Caesar. This cocktail opts of the more "craft" version of Clamato, Walter Caesar Mix and works just fine year-round too.

Happy holidays!

Wintertime Caesar

1 tsp maple syrup
caesar rimmer, enough to rim glass
cucumber, thinly sliced lengthwise
2 ounces Canadian whisky
4 ounces Walter Craft Caesar Mix
4 dashes hot sauce
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Dip glass edges lightly in maple syrup and then dip into caesar rimmer spice mix.

Place some cucumber in glass, top with ice, add whisky, Walter Craft Caesar Mix, and remaining ingredients.

Stir, garnish with another cucumber shaving*, lime wedge and enjoy.

*it's easy to make thin, long slices of cucumber, just use a sharp vegetable peeler.
