Bloody Ceasers

Yield:  4 servings


Cocktail mix:

  • 2 tablespoons celery salt
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 4 to 6 ounces or shots of your favourite vodka
  • 1 liter can or bottle of Clamato juice
  • Lots of ice
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish
  • Dash hot sauce
  • Dash Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash olive oil

Fancy Garnish:

  • 4 long sprigs of fresh oregano
  • 4 artful lemon wedges
  • 4 grilled shrimp skewers
  • 4 celery stalks with leaves if possible
  • 4 parsley sprigs
  • Other assorted frills and fancies


  1. Begin by rimming the glasses. Mix the celery salt and oregano together in a small saucer or side plate.  Moisten the rims of 4 cocktail glasses and dip and roll them into the spices to coat.  Fill with ice.
  2. Pour the vodka and Clamato juice into a large pitcher and add horseradish, hot sauce, Worcestershire, olive oil and oregano.
  3. Blend with an immersion blender and pour into prepared glasses.  Alternatively blend in a food processor or stand blender or simply whisk or stir. A thorough blending not only mixes the works but emulsifies the oil giving the drink a luscious texture.
  4. Playfully garnish the glasses with the remaining ingredients and your imagination! The more outlandish the better!
