Is the caesar the national cocktail of Canada?

Maybe. But I don't like them.

I might even say definitely.

But I don't really drink them as I don't drink hard liquor or cocktails made with them.

I love them, but I hate the hangover.

I couldn't think of any other "Canadian" cocktails, so I just did some web browsing. This one sounds Canadian as the "eh" in Sir John A:

Maple Leaf Cocktail:
¼ oz. lemon juice
½oz. Canadian maple syrup
1 oz. Crown Royal Whiskey

Mix all ingredients in a shaker, with ice.
Shake, drain into a martini glass and serve.

I don't know how easy it'd be to get one's hands on a bottle of Crown Royal right now, though.

You mean, at 10 pm on a Sunday night in Ottawa, or that the product has been discontinued? I am pretty sure it still exists.

It's the seafood version of a Bloody Mary...a Bloody Clam maybe?

I don't shop for whisky, I thought they had a strike or something? Or was it a particular Crown Royal product that won an award? A rye? There was a run on some product or other of theirs.

Crown Royal exists.. They even have a Crown Royal Maple Finished so no need to add maple syrup to the cocktail

The one that is apparently hard to get your hands on is the Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye. It won a world whisky of the year award

I love them. The first time I was in Vancouver, I thought they were just another name for a Bloody Mary. I had one and thought, Dang, this is really good. When I discovered it had Clamato in it, I was floored. I'm very particular about my fishiness and wouldn't drink Clamato by choice, but it really makes an incredible difference.

Bloody Caesars suck.

I am so tired of bartenders, who, when I ask for a Bloody Mary (just plain tomato juice and vodka), assume that I want a Caesar. No, I don't. I've barfed on the floor of a fancy Toronto club because they served me a Caesar when I asked for a Mary, and I've warned them that I'm going to puke if they serve me anything containing seafood. I can eat fish, sure, I just cannot drink it.

And I cannot drink seafood and alcohol, mixed.

Where is it written that bartenders assume what the guest wants? If I ask for "tomato juice and vodka" why is it assumed that I want "clam and tomato juice and vodka."? Emphasis added, but I did not ask for that. Clamato makes me barf, and I warn the barmen that I want just plain tomato juice, but they serve me Clamato, and I barf. Fair warning, but they could have avoided the cleanup if they only listened!

Serve me a Bloody Mary and we're good. Serve me a Bloody Caesar (because, as a Canadian, I must have made a mistake in my order), and you'll have me barfing sixteen ways to Sunday. I've left trails of puke (after asking for Bloody Marys) in any numbers of pubs and clubs in Canada.

The Bloody Caesar--Woo-hoo--the real Canadian drink! Well, Bloody Caesars make me puke. My vomit ranges from Newfoundland to BC, mainly due to bartenders who think I made a mistake in my order. Listen to what I want, and give it to me.
