National Caesar Day is the Thursday before the May long weekend to celebrate the cocktail loved by many Canadians. In fact, the Caesar became Canada’s national drink when Parliament made it official in 2009.
In honor of our favourite cocktail and the official kick-off to summer, we are launching Eddie’s Famous Caesar. A crowd favorite, Eddie’s Caesar is a perfect drink any time of day!

Tell us about the famous Eddie’s Caesar
Over my early years of bartending, I had been a part of a few Caesar competitions and it grew from there. I wanted to create a unique flavor and it really all started with the Caesar rim. Then I moved to perfecting a simple mix for Bartenders. My Caesar has a smokiness to it, created from a unique blend of 4 spices plus a little secret ingredient in the rim and drink.
So, can you tell us the secret ingredient?
Tell us a fun fact about you.
I played NCAA Football and was drafted into the CFL. After a short stint due to an injury, I pursued my passion in Hospitality. Fun fact: I loved doing the Decathlon in College except for Pole Vaulting!
