Considering the Caesar is considered Canada’s cocktail, it’s expected fans across the nation will be breaking out their version of the drink on Canada Day, July 1. And there are as many versions of the Caesar as there are patriots mixing them up for friends and family.

But, for those looking to up their Caesar game, Fairmont Hotels has some suggestions.

For more inspiration when making your own “perfect patio sipper,” Jetside Bar at Fairmont Vancouver Airport shared its Lemon Beer Caesar recipe, which uses local lemon pale ale from Four Winds Brewing in Delta, B.C. For a very West Coast take on this Canadian treasure, try this recipe at home.
