    Sure do. You can even get Clamato in your mini-bar in the room.

    When I was there in August, they never seemed to have Clamato at the bars when I ordered a Caeser. I brought my own clamato down from my room (mini bar), and asked the bar tenders to make me a caeser with it.

    No problem! The breakfast buffet includes a "make your own bloody mary" bar at the end of the bar. I think they only have tomato juice, but you can get Clamato from the bartender or just bring it down from your room. Enjoy!

    I'd like to take this opportunity to "blame Canada" for my latest drink addiction. I'm at nearly a Caesar a day, thanks to you crazy Canucks.

    I'm 'blaming' the canadians too! Having discovered bloody casears on this mesasge board I then found Clamato juice in my local supermarket in England. To top things off I then had to change my pre check in for CSA & CN to include Clamato juice in my mini bar LOL!

    7 days to CSA & CN - woo hoo!!

    KrisJamie - I have to say that having a caeser addiction is a wonderful thing

    I hope it isn't like Couples Sans Souci where the bars NEVER had clamato juice stocked - I could never understand why I had to cart down the ones from my room every day. Maybe I will send a pleasant reminder to Randy.

    Its just a Bloody Mary with Clamato instead of tomato juice. Not sure what the Canadian connection is, though. I bartended 12 years ago in college in Lincoln, NE, and we made them all the time. We called them "Bloody with Clamato".

    CTI was hit or miss as to having it behind the bar, but the wonderful bar staff always was able to find some if we wanted to indulge our latest addiction.

    A Caesar or Bloody Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, Clamato (a proprietary blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime.

    It was invented in Calgary, Alberta in 1969 by restaurateur Walter Chell to celebrate the opening of a new Italian restaurant in the city. It quickly became a popular mixed drink, but remains virtually unknown outside Canada. It is claimed that over 350 million Caesars are consumed in Canada annually, and it has inspired numerous variants.

    That is the Canadian connection we own it PLUS it is in MHO 2,020 times better at clearing out the cobwebs after a rum squall than any other Sunday morning cure. Also good with a bit of hot horse radish and a dill pickle or dilled green bean mc

    Well, there's the Canadian connection And, like I said, it's a Bloody Mary with Clamato, instead of straight tomato juice. The Bloody Mary was invented in New York by Lucius Beebe in 1939. Substitute Clamato and you have a Bloody Caesar. (I like the Wikipedia reference)

    And as for clearing the cobwebs, I totally agree. It's got everything... vitamins, water, electrolytes, and, most importantly, VODKA!

    awesome description... so good, in fact, that Wikipedia stole it!

    I don't really understand savory drinks, but this one might be worth trying!

    Dank120 I hate to disagree but a Ceaser is far superior to any Bloody Mary hands down and yes they do contain the most important vitamin to be taken the morning after the night before Vitamin V and thanks to Wikipedia Take Care mc

    Disagree? I actually prefer my Bloody Marys with Clamato. It's the only way I've made my Bloodys since '99. We also use Clamato for our red beers. I'm sure you have had some crappy Bloody Marys too. We all have! If it's not made from scratch, but from that pre-made mix, it's usually nasty anyway. As in cooking, fresh ingredients make all the difference. But, when it comes down to it, the only difference in ingredients is a splash of clam juice, which is the basic difference between Clamato and tomato juice.

    Here's my homemade recipe for a Bloody Mary/Caesar:

    In a shaker,

    Ice Cubes
    1-1/2 oz vodka (or more!)
    3 healthy splashes worcestershire
    1 heaping tsp ground horseradish (tablespoon, if you really like horseradish)
    1/8 tsp celery salt
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    3 dashes favorite hot sauce (try Walkerswood fire stick from Jamaica)
    Squeeze of 1 lime wedge
    Squeeze of 1 lemon wedge
    Top off with 3-4 oz tomato juice (Bloody Mary) or Clamato (Caesar)

    Shake ingredients to chill, then pour into a kosher or celery salt-rimmed pint glass.

    Garnish with any or all of the following:
    Celery stalk
    Green olive
    Pickle
    Cocktail onion
    Pickled green bean
    Pickled asparagus
    Pickled banana pepper
    Green or red bell pepper strip
    Lime wedge
    Lemon wedge

    Either way is a great drink, but the clam juice (in the Clamato) really sets it off and compliments well with the horseradish and citrus juices, almost creating a savory shrimp cocktail-like drink. Enjoy!

    I buy the ready to drink coolers - less hassle mixing them on our houseboat
    I enjoy the Smirnoff variety far better than the Motts. Absolutely yummy once I had my extra fixings. Can't beat it, eh?

    Hi everyone, just arrived at CSA and had my first Jamaican bloody Caesar on the beach yesterday. At the beach bar they have a pre mixed hot sauce which they put in the drink to spice it up. OMG, it nearly blew my head off!

    BTW, weather fantastic and food as good as ever. Looking forward to transferring to Couples Negril on Tuesday.
