Canada Day – How To List

As Canada Day approaches we’ve compiled a short list of things Canadians should know how to do this Canada Day.

  1. How to Make a Caesar Cocktail
    The Caesar, a uniquely Canadian cocktail, follows a very simple 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 rule.
    For an individual cocktail: Mix 1 oz Vodka, 2 dashes of hot sauce, 3 dashes of pepper & salt, 4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce and 5 oz of Mott’s Clamato juice. Pour over ice into a glass rimmed with celery salt or a mix of salt and pepper and garnished with a celery stalk and lime. Find more Caesar recipes from Mott’s Clamato
  2. How to Cook a Lobster
    You will need 1 to 1 1/2 lbs of lobster per person. Fully cover the lobsters with well salted water (you can use sea water if you’re near enough to get some) and bring to a rolling boil. Grasp the lobster by the back and plunge it headfirst into the boiling water. Cover and simmer 7-10 minutes for the first pound in 2-3 minutes for each additional pound. Remember to increase the cooking time if more than one lobster is in the pot. Once the lobster is cooked, remove it from the water. The lobster will continue to cook in its shell even when removed from the cooking liquid —so take them out just before they are cooked or cook until done and then place into iced water to cool and stop the cooking process. If you plan to serve the lobster cold, refrigerate it until needed.
