March 2013 ALREADY MB Challenge

Note to self: Do NOT choose challenge for the month after an adult beverage of choice!!!!!

Or at least, take more than a few minutes to spout whatever comes into your brain...if you have a WickiBrain, that is. I chose "Ides of March" since it is for March 15. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. Our chief Poo-Bah, Diana jumped right in and got hers done early so she could go to Italy...bummer, right?

SO, here it is. A Caesar or Bloody Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, Clamato (a proprietary blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime.

It was invented in Calgary, Alberta in 1969 by restaurateur Walter Chell to celebrate the opening of a new Italian restaurant in the city. It quickly became a popular mixed drink within Canada where over 350 million Caesars are consumed annually and it has inspired numerous variants. However, the drink remains virtually unknown outside the country. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
