This Tangy Thai Caesar Cocktail Will Put You In The Mood for Summer

Get creative with Canada’s national cocktail with this tangy twist. This Thai Caesar cocktail recipe is refreshingly new and delicious.

This summer, step up your rim game

Replace the go-to celery salt with some delicious specialty rims made with everyday items from your pantry. Get creative with Canada’s national cocktail – pull from your favourite dishes and spices and modify to your specific taste. The rim should always be well balanced – salt, spice, and even sugar.

Rims inspired by dishes:
•Sushi – sesame seeds, salt, panko crumbs
•Mediterranean Flat Bread – za’taar spice, salt, chili powder
•Couscous – smoked paprika, cumin, salt

Rims inspired by spices:
•Nori Salt – combine a dry sheet of seaweed or nori from a sushi roll and throw it in a blender for a few sounds. It can be found in the Japanese aisle of your boutique grocer.
•Espelette Salt – combine smoky French peppercorn, ground espelette, and regular salt.
•Truffle Salt – available at boutique grocers.
•Hibiscus Salt – pick up dry hibiscus at your local boutique grocer or food market – simply blend with regular salt.
