Dock 57 Spiced Whiskey Caesar being made by Adriano Ciotoli of WindsorEats

With the weather forecast set to be absolutely gorgeous this week, we took the opportunity to use our CTV Windsor segment with Arms Bumanlag to show everyone how to make a Caesar to enjoy while soaking in the rays. The twist? We’ve substituted the vodka with spiced whisky!

With the home of Canadian Club located right here in Windsor, Ontario (we visit them on our Drinks of Walkerville walking tour, which is a must do), we figured we’d use our world famous local distillery to make a twist on a popular, traditional drink.


  • 1 oz. Canadian Club Dock 57 Spiced Whisky
  • 1 oz. juice from pickles/pickled garlic scapes
  • Worchestershire sauce
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Vegetable juice
  • Salt and Pepper

Simply take a highball glass and fill it with ice. Pour in the spiced whisky and pickle juice. We have jars of pickled garlic scapes which we use and found the juice from that works best for adding a nice garlicky flavour.

Depending on how you like spice, add some drops of Worchestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce.

We used a store bought vegetable juice to top off the drink, but if you have a juicer at home, we’d strongly recommend experimenting with making your own version of a vegetable cocktail to add. You can try the basics like tomatoes, peppers, celery and garlic, but you can also be adventurous and add items horseradish, Dijon mustard and even ginger to give your vegetable juice for the Caesars a unique zing.

Once you’ve topped off your glass with the vegetable juice, add some cracked pepper and salt to the drink, stir with a celery stick and top it off with a pickle or some scapes that you took the juice from.

Voila! A new, tasty and refreshing take on a traditional Caesar.
