Canada's version of a Bloody Mary is practically our national cocktail. Even though there are standard ingredients to use while making a caesar, such as the Clamato juice, Worchestershire sauce and vodka, there are so many ways to remake this drink, especially with different spices and garnish.

These Ottawa restaurants have their own take on the caesar and there are some truly epic ones to sip across the capital. You don't need to wait until National Caesar Day, or your next hangover brunch for that matter, to enjoy this savoury treat.

The Whalesbone

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Seafood

Address: 231 Elgin St., 430 Bank St., 1084 Wellington St. W. & 504a Kent St., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: This caesar is meant for seafood fans. Not only can you accompany their Oyster House Caesar with a meal of fish n' chips or lobster, but an oyster also comes as a garnish on top of your drink.

Social Restaurant and Lounge 

Price: 💸💸

Cuisine: Progressive Canadian

Address: 537 Sussex Dr., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: Their caesar is made with infused vodka with a house mix and a smoky rim, and they don't skimp on the garnish. They don't call it a "Harvest Caesar" for nothing.

Menu

Fairmont Chateau Laurier

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Canadian

Address: 1 Rideau St., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: This is probably the most epic caesar in Ottawa, if not all of Ontario. There's no need to order an appetizer if this is the cocktail of choice. The Surf & Turf Caesar is meant to be shared and is garnished with shrimp and charcuterie, like mini sliders or chicken and waffles.

Menu

Fauna

Price: 💸💸 - 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Canadian

Address: 425 Bank St., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: The Mezcal Caesar is just one of many cocktails at this fine dining restaurant in Ottawa. This particular Caesar is made with both mezcal and gin, ghost pepper hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and rimmed with an agave worm salt for a unique kick.

Menu

Lexington Smokehouse and Bar

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Barbeque

Address: 344 Richmond Rd., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: The Hail Caesar is made with vodka and is topped off with pickled garnish as you'd normally expect, but it's also served with a full piece of fried chicken. You can probably pass on ordering an app!

Menu

Heart and Crown

Price: 💸💸💸

Cuisine: Pub

Address: 3161 Strandherd Dr. #300, 353 B Preston St., 67 Clarence St. & 62 William St., Ottawa, ON

Why You Need To Go: The Hairy Larry Caesar is a fan favourite (if you know, you know). Besides the usual ingredients, this cocktail is made with vodka, has a bacon salt rimmer, and is topped off with stuffed olives, cheddar cheese and a pepperette. Plus, it comes with a five-ounce beer chaser to wash it all down.
