Mmm, a Boston Sunday, late morning, brunch and a Bloody Mary, what could be better? A Bloody Caesar, of course. Sub the tomato juice for clamato and you have a savory salty sipper that satisfies the craving for something from the sea or just adds a splash of something special to your typical Sunday cocktail. Just a hint of clam is infused in this mix and makes for one spectacular seaside beverage. New to the world of the Bloody Caesar? Try this traditional recipe:
1–1½ oz of vodka, two dashes of hot sauce, three dashes of salt and pepper, four dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and top with 4–6 oz of Clamato Juice. Serve over ice in a celery salt lined glass, then garnish with a celery stalk and lime wedge.
One brunch place corners the market on these hangover helpers in Boston: The East Coast Grill in Inman Sqaure. Offering a make-your-own Bloody Mary Bar, you gain complete control over your drink. First, you select your vodka, then head to the large and unusual selection of mix-ins to serve yourself the perfect Bloody. For a Caesar, tweak the above recipe using an unusual hot sauce, an extra mix-in, or special garnish, and the Caesar becomes an original made to please your specific tastes. Then drink up, because although you'll be enjoying the food, you'll want to take another spin at the bar.
