Serving Caesar
A Bloody Mary or Caesar is refreshing on a summer day, and loaded with nutrients as well.  Serve it alone or with a salad. Or, if you feel creative, skewer some fresh seafood and place it in the glass for added flavor and an appetizer to boot!

This recipe is a variation on the traditional Canadian creation. More typically it would call for Worstershire Sauce instead of Balsamic and lemon juice instead of lime. A dash of hot sauce, usually Tabasco, is also typical. Using Clamato cocktail instead of tomato juice is another popular option. Other variations call for a sprig of an herb, like rosemary, instead of parsley or celery. If you have fresh herbs on hand, bruise them a bit to bring out the fragrance so that when you raise your glass, the aroma of the fresh herb is accompanied by the taste of the drink . . .

1 large wedge of fresh lime
