Toronto's 6 Hottest Caesars

By Suresh Doss  |  June 11, 2014

If there was an official summertime drink for Toronto, it would be the almighty Caesar (which by the way is a Canadian invention). You'll find a classic version of the cocktail on menus all over town, but here we've rounded up some of the most creative and delicious versions we could find. 

  • The Absolut Cure at Hunters Landing

    This is most over-the-top Caesar we've encountered to date. If you want a Caesar that drinks like a meal then head to Hunter's landing and order the Absolut Cure. The customizable drinks feature wacky toppings like house smoked bacon, thick slices of mozzarella, a brisket slider or an entire lobster tail. Why choose when you can have them all?

  • Choose your poison at The Federal Reserve

    Little Portugal's popular brunch spot has a DIY Caesar option where guests can choose the base, do you prefer tequila, vodka or gin? Each Caesar is made with Walter's Caesar mix (A Toronto based company) and is garnished with Doritos.

  • Rock Lobster

    This is definitely the the most Instagram'd Caesar in Toronto. A Nova Scotia lobster tail dresses the tall cocktail which is made with a generous amount of steak spice and Tabasco sauce. We've never been able to stop after just one.

  • Oliver & Bonacini's Café Grill

    The after work crowd love this drink at Oliver & Bonacini's Café Grill on Front street. Saffron and basil-infused gin is mised with horseradish-infused vodka to create this drink, which is then mixed with a cilantro bbq sauce. It's topped with fresh cucumber slices and salt bitters.

  • The Bungalow Island at Mildred's Temple Kitchen

    One of the city's most popular brunch spots has one of the best Caesar's we've enjoyed in Toronto. The Bungalow Island is made with clam juice, dashes of house-made hot sauce and a generous amount of curly celery and horseradish.

  • Smoked Caesar at Farmhouse Tavern

    Recently voted one of the city's best takes on the classic cocktail, the Caesar at this farm-to-table eatery is made with TAG Vodga and heightened by the use of house-smoked oysters.
