Proof Caesar: A Game-Changing Caesar Cocktail [Recipe]

The Caesar cocktail is a classic Canadian brunch staple, but with a little creativity, it can be transformed into something truly special. The Proof Caesar, made with Proof Artisan Distillers‘ Vänskap Aquavit or Old Tom gin, is a game-changer that will make you rethink everything you know about Caesar cocktails.

The Vänskap Aquavit Caesar is a unique and flavorful take on the classic cocktail. The aquavit adds a subtle Nordic flavor profile that is both complex and refreshing. The Old Tom Caesar (see photo below) is a bit more traditional, but the Old Tom gin gives it a smooth and complex flavor that sets it apart from other Caesars.

To make a Proof Caesar, simply combine your chosen Proof spirit with Clamato juice, Worcestershire sauce, and your favorite Caesar garnishes. You can also add a dash of hot sauce or celery salt for extra flavor.
