Across the country, Canadians hailed the Caesar cocktail Thursday.
While it is believed 360 million Caesars are made each year, National Caesar Day (May 16), is the unofficial kick-off to summer and the Canadian-made drink was given a spicy twist at Craft Corner Kitchen in the South Okanagan.
Chef Jon Cote, in Penticton, stacked up some fun garnishes to celebrate the day. Pouring a gin, basil and watermelon caesar he topped the cocktail off with two pork ribs, kale chimichurri, chicken and waffle, deep friend cheese curds and a beet cured deviled egg. The whole thing was then drizzled with maple gastrique.
Craft Corner Kitchen is one of nine places nominated in the Best of the South Okanagan 2019, Best Place to Get a Caesar category. Share your favourite place, or vote for one already on the list by clicking here.
