The Caesar was first created in Calgary in 1969. Fourty years later, in 2009, the Caesar was declared by Parliament to be "Canada's Official Cocktail." This isn't that surprising when you consider that, according to Mott's Clamato, Canadians consume over 407 million Caesars each year.
Every year, on May 16, the country celebrates the iconic drink with "National Caesar Day." Whether you like your Caesar classic, spicy, or topped with 3 trillion things, there's a bar out there that will serve it to you just the way you like it.
