Cla-WHAT?

If anybody has the cojones to try one of these, let me know. I can't do it. I just can't.

I can't do it either, but it's not the clam juice. I don't like the "mato" part. I'm sure one of your Canadian readers can fill you in on the appeal, because Canucks seem to love the stuff.

I've seen those drinks in convenience shops down here in Florida. It's probably an acquired taste.

I ran into a mini-mart for ice, for my son's homecoming party, last June. Spotted a big can of that and grabbed it, just for kicks. It took me *quite* a bit of wrestling to find taste-testers. The response was a universal Thumbs DOWN, from everyone I coerced.

You should try it.

It's the cla- part that bothers me . . . what does that mean? Ever had a red beer? Beer with something like V-8 and tabasco. Helps if you've had several other beers beforehand. Drank it with rodeo friend from Oklahoma (him rodeo, not me).

George said...

Oh, yeah . . . I've had a chelada in a restaurant at the recommendation of a Mexican friend . . . must be an acquired taste.

Hell I won't even try the Bud Lime beers they have out now - there is no freaking way I am trying THAT.

Everybody - Thanks for your support. Of course, the more I think about it, the more I know I must try one. Don't worry. The drinking will be documented.

Stephanie said...

Heh. I'll admit - I drink these sometimes. I can't really explain to you WHY, however. The first one I tried purely out of curiosity & it tasted all metallic & bleh. But then, for some reason, I bought another one & it was better... still not great... but better. Usually it is because what I really want is a Bloody Mary, but this is more convenient.

Laurie said...

Stephanie - You convinced me. I'll try it.

C'mon, man up folks. It's just clam juice and tomato juice. And as Steve said, it's mainly a Canadian thing. The Bloody Caesar was invented at the Westin Hotel in Calgary, AB - just think of a Bloody Mary with a shot of clam juice. It's really quite good. Now, I'm not sure I want it in my beer, but clamato and vodka, stick of celery for whatever it is veggies are supposed to do for you - mmmm mmmm good. And if you're ever in Calgary during the first two weeks of July for the Calgary Stampede, why no self respecting Stampede breakfast would be without it's pitchers of Bloody Caesars to go along with your pancakes and sausages.

Rodeodoc - Calgary, here I come!
