The Bloody Caesar is synonymous with Canada. The cocktail was invented by a Canadian and is enjoyed year-round in our country. This Ritz-Carlton signature Caesar elevates the Canadian classic to a higher level of luxury, while preserving its savoury yet refreshing flavour profile. Keeping with the high standards associated with the cocktail program in Ritz Bar, our signature Caesar Mix is made in-house, while the garnishes represent ingredients found throughout Canada. The whisky used in the cocktail commemorates Canada's upcoming 150 year Anniversary of Confederation. The TOCA Pinot Noir Reduction represents Ontario's world class wineries and vineyards. The cheese selection represents the province of Quebec and the influence that French culture and cuisine has within Canada. Finally, the East Coast Lobster Tail represents the Atlantic provinces and their history of hospitality, it will also be the prominent garnish. The cocktail is finished off with a sweet and savoury aspect; by incorporating bacon and maple syrup (two of the most recognizable Canadian ingredients in the world), a unique flavour profile is created which contrasts the citrus and spice found in the Caesar itself.
