Recipe: Bloody Caesar Cocktail

Although Halloween is looking a little different this year, there’s no reason why you can’t get into the spirit of things from the comfort of your own home. Try your hand at whipping up a Bloody Caesar cocktail, taken from Signe Johansen’s Spirited recipe book – with the word ‘bloody’ in the title, this one’s a no-brainer for All Hallows’ Eve.

Bloody Caesar Cocktail

Serves 1

1 heaped tsp celery salt

handful of ice cubes

200ml Clamato (substitute with fresh tomato juice or plain tomato juice from the supermarket)

mix of black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, horseradish sauce, gherkin pickle juice, or whatever seasoning you like and have available, to taste

25-50ml vodka


for the garnish:

large cooked prawns



pickled chillies


celery stick

1. Start by dipping your highball glass upside down in water to wet the rim. In a small bowl, have your celery salt ready and gently twist the highball rim so it absorbs the salt.

2. Fill the glass with ice, pour the Clamato in and season to your taste. Add the vodka and give the drink a good stir.

3. Garnish to your heart’s content – as a nod to the maritime flavour of the Clamato, you can add a large prawn or two on a cocktail stick, along with olives and gherkins.
