In honour of National Caesar Day on May 17th, Canadian vodka brand Polar Ice Vodka® and The Keg Steakhouse + Bar are joining together by celebrating Canada’s National Cocktail: The Caesar.
It is commonly understood that the first Caesar was created by Walter Chell at the Calgary Inn which is now The Keg Steakhouse + Bar located at 4th Avenue inside the Westin Hotel. Having been officially named Canada’s National Cocktail by Parliament in 2009, National Caesar Day is a day that celebrates a moment in Canada’s culture.
Polar Ice Vodka®️ has been the Keg’s choice for their famous Caesar since the 1990s. More fun facts about the classic Caesar can be found in a custom Keg Size Caesar infographic.
This year, The Keg is unveiling a new twist on the classic Caesar in their summer drinks menu: The Prescott Caesar, featuring J.P. Wiser’s® Deluxe whisky and the addition of pineapple juice. Look for it at The Keg starting May 14th.
