Homemade Vegan Caesar Cocktail

Have you ever had a Caesar or Bloody Mary cocktail before?

Caesar’s were my absolute favourite drink growing up- the virgin, non-alcoholic kind, mind you! It was a rare occasion when my family wouldn’t have a few supersized bottles of Mott’s Clamato in our pantry. If our stock ran out, my sister and I would often fight over who got the last glass. Or, we’d drink so much that my dad would go to make himself a glass and there would be none left for him.

“Did someone drink the rest of the Clamato juice…??”

Uh oh.

“Kristi did it!!!”

We’d pour a huge, celery-salt rimmed glass of Clamato juice, add in some Worcestershire sauce, ice, a few drops of Tabasco, and a stalk of celery. Nothing was better.

Admittedly, I always thought a Bloody Mary was simply a virgin Caesar with vodka added to it; however, I recently discovered that Caesar’s and Bloody Mary’s are two different drinks.

IMG_7609

A Bloody Mary is a cocktail that uses tomato juice as the base and includes other ingredients such as vodka, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, olive, cayenne pepper/Tabasco sauce, lemon juice, and occasionally even bouillon. Sometimes instead of celery it’s garnished with pickled asparagus or other vegetables. The origin of the drink is unclear and there is dispute over who created it, although many speculate the drink came from the US (1).

A Caesar cocktail, on the other hand, is made up with a base of clam and tomato juice (think Clamato juice), containing similar ingredients like Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vodka, celery, and a celery-salt rimmed glass. It’s said to originate from Calgary, Alberta in 1969 (2). Walter Chell created the drink for the opening of his new restaurant in Calgary (3).

As you can see, the two drinks are strikingly similar, save for a different base, a few seasonings, and traditional garnishes.

When people ask me what foods were the most difficult to give up when I went vegan, many are surprised when I say “Clamato Juice”. But it’s true! I used to drink this stuff like water and it only occurred to me recently that I should try making my own vegan-friendly version at home.

My mission started rather abruptly, with a V8 explosion. I opened this bottle a couple months ago, forgot it in the back of the fridge, and was rewarded with this little mess when I opened it. Needless to say, I did not use this sour V8 in my cocktail! The smell of it would make your nose hairs curl. It was just awful.

Enter, new, unopened vegetable juice.

IMG_7607

Using this Homemade Bloody Mary recipe from Kristina as a guide, I dumped the juice in a bowl and added the ingredients all to taste.

I suggest you do the same. You may prefer more or less of the seasonings I used. When it tastes good to you, it’s done!

IMG_7612

After tasting and testing and adjusting the seasonings (feel free to pretend you’re a crazy cool Mixologist), it wasn’t long before I decided that my drink was perfect. I also added a pinch of kelp granules to give it a hint of the sea, without the clams.

The mix turned out so similar to my childhood favourite I’m not sure I could pick out the original in a blind taste test. I guess the real test will be making this for my dad when he comes to visit. I predict he will like this version better, but I may be biased. ;)

Homemade Vegan Caesar Cocktail

Vegan, no bake/raw, oil-free

Is this a vegan version of a Caesar cocktail or is it an adapted version of the Bloody Mary? I can’t decide. Whatever you call it, this is one fantastic drink with a whopping 4 servings of vegetables per 500 ml glass. Be sure to add the seasonings to taste and you can’t go wrong.
Adapted from Former Chef.

Yield
Two 500ml servings
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups (32 oz) vegetable juice
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-1.5 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce (I use The Wizard’s brand)
  • 2-2.5 tsp hot sauce, or to taste
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp celery seed
  • Sprinkle of Herbamare or kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Vodka, to taste (optional)
  • Kelp granules, to taste (optional)
  • To garnish: celery salt, lime, celery stalks, ice

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl or pitcher, add the vegetable juice. Now whisk in the rest of the ingredients all to taste.
  2. Grab two 500-ml glasses and rim the edge with a lime wedge. Now dip glass rim into a shallow bowl of celery salt. Pour drink into glasses and garnish with a lime wedge, celery stalk, and ice. Serve immediately.

I didn’t have any celery salt on hand, so I used kosher salt. I wouldn’t really recommend it though, it was more for the photo than anything!

After a tough workout yesterday, this was the best, thirst-quenching drink to happen to my taste buds in a long time!

With 4 servings of vegetables per glass, it was also a great way to sneak veggies into my day with minimal effort.

Bloody mary’s (nevere even heard of this Caesar thing!) are my favorite alcoholic drink, hands down. I’ve never made my own entirely from scratch though but I should because there’s nothing worse than a BAD bloody mary!

Totally agree Gina, there s nothing worse than a bad Bloody Mary! too often they just taste like straight up cocktail sauce. For me, there is no such thing as a ‘just okay’ Bloody Mary… they are either very bad or very good… I would someday love to experience a mind blowing spectacular Bloody Mary :D This vegan Caesar version looks worthy of giving a go for Brunch at home this coming weekend! Beautiful presentation, Angela :-D

OMG…u have to try pickled okra!!! yum…u can find it in the pickle section most of the time if u dont want to make it homemade.

Reply

10 Jesica February 20, 2012

Hmmm … it’s like … all of the cool parts about okra without the slime: the round seeds, the cool shape, etc. It doesn’t get slimy like a lot of cooked okra! When you bite it it sort of pops and the little round seeds inside come out, and I think it tastes delicious – especially if it’s a bit spicy. The Whole Foods in my area have it on the pickle bar and there are a few brands that jar it, too – though it might be a regional thing (southeastern US). I’ve never tried to make it on my own! Will have to sometime … :)

Can be 2 drinks as well, which I love, a veggie juice or a perfect bloody mary type of drink…I may have to splash a drop or two of some vodka in there though, just a splash! :)

When I was a bartender Caesar’s were the most popular brunch-time cocktail.Not many of our neighbors across the border have heard of Clamato juice so during the Expo ’86 days it was nice introducing them to this wonderful drink.

Hi Angela … I’m always off-topic on your posts, but I have a request. I LOVE scones, and while I’ve enjoyed the Vegan with a Vengeance and Vegan Lunch Box recipes, neither of them has QUITE the right consistency. Whole Foods makes a really good vegan chocolate chip one with the kind of crunch a scone should have … if you felt like trying to figure out how they did it, I would be so happy :-) And if you needed to wait and put it in the cookbook, it would be more cost-effective for both of us if I just sent you the $200 I would be paying to Whole Foods over the next two years in order to get the recipe early ;-)

Reply

43 Angela (Oh She Glows) February 20, 2012

Hey Cara, How’d you know that I was thinking of making a classic scone recipe? I will have to investigate Whole Foods next time Im there. I don’t think I’ve seen a vegan scone there, so I hope they have one!

Reply

44 Cara February 21, 2012

I can send you the ingredient list (as posted) but not the amounts :-P They seem to use both coconut and oats to contribute to the chewiness, but somehow they mostly make them disappear, but once in awhile you get a bite where you notice a chewy piece of oat or coconut … like maybe they process them first? I could also mail you a scone, but it might get a little stale ;-)

Reply

45 Angela (Oh She Glows) February 21, 2012

haha you are too cute!

The ingredient list would actually help me a lot!! I tried searching online for the recipe, but didn’t find anything. If it’s not a trouble, you can email it to me angela [at] ohsheglows [dot] com

I have never been a fan of Bloody Mary’s or heard of clamato juice. I guess I have always seen pureed tomatoes and/or tomato juice as the base for tomato soup. Darn all of those grilled cheese and tomato soup lunches as a kid!

I’ve always liked to say that drinking bloody marys is “a great way to sneak in some extra veggies” too. Although really any excuse to drink a bloody mary in the morning (especially after a long night ) is awesome. Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to make one of these… very very soon :)

I love Caesars! And I have to laugh reading the (I’m assuming) American commenters note that they’ve never heard of them. Years ago on a trip to Texas my dad and I went out to dinner at a nice restaurant. Being a teen at the time, I ordered a virgin Caesar. The waiter looked a little puzzled but left with our order. A couple of minutes later he comes back and said “You ordered a virgin Caesar…we don’t normally have alcohol in our Caesar salads.” Haha! When we described the drink to him he said “Oh! A Bloody Mary!” :)

For me, I really love the idea of balancing out vodka with an ungodly amount of vegetables. That’s a guilt-free cocktail if there ever was one.

Hello! I recently cut out dairy, meat and eggs and can’t believe how good I feel and am slowly learning what to eat. It’s definately a learning process! I wanted to try your vegan chocolate chip cookies but am unsure of what to buy for chocolate chips…all the dark chocolate ones I look at have some type of dairy in them. Sorry to be off-topic…I’ve really been enjoying your site so thought I’d start here! Thank you!

I find that many “dark” chocolate chips are vegan. You can also use semi-sweet chips quite often too…just be sure to check the label.

69 Shelly February 21, 2012

Thank you so much for getting back to me! Sorry to be so naive…but the dark and semi-sweet chips I looked at have cocoa butter and milk fat I think is what it said…I just saw butter/milk and instantly thought dairy…I’m trying to stay away from any dairy. Maybe I’m misunderstanding the ingredients? Is there a brand name that you buy? I’m from Michigan so not sure we would have the same brands?

I’ve gotta say – I’ve never heard a vegan say that giving up clam juice was the hardest. And I thought hearing people say “honey” was odd- cheese is what I hear most often!
I’ve never heard the term’ Caesar” for a drink before. This sounds so good though- I looove bloody marys. There’s a restaurant near me that makes a version with tequila and has old bay around the rim (well, around here people put old bay on everything)- and that is my favorite.

I think the mason jar mugs are also part of what differentiates a caesar from a bloody mary, it just doesn’t taste right without them! These were also very prominent throughout my childhood, although when we were younger, my sister and I called them pickle juice, because it was just about the only time we saw dill pickles (spears not slices) in the house!

How long do you think these have a shelf life for? My husband will go nuts if i tell him there is a healthy option for caesars! I was thinking of making a couple batches and having them in the fridge.. you say serve immediately so I wasn’t sure if perhaps they wouldn’t sit for too long? thanks!

Hey Kellie, To be honest, I’m not really sure about shelf life! I’ve always drank them right away. I imagine they would hold up for a half a day probably? Not totally sure though! Let me know if you try it out. My guess is that they would need a good stir after sitting.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I used to love a Caesar, but haven’t had anything even close to it since becoming vegan. This is delicious and just that flavour I was looking for! :-) My Labour Day weekend is now complete
