Watermelon Caesar

Produced: Sun Ngo; Photography: Christie Vuong; Food Styling: Ashley Denton; Prop Styling: Catherine Doherty

This unconventional take on the Canadian classic was created for Chatelaine by Christine Sismondo . It uses fresh watermelon and a vegan Caesar mix instead of tomato clam cocktail. All the other products are sourced from Canadian companies with women at the helm.


  • Salty Paloma Heartbreaker cocktail rimmer

  • 1 cup seedless watermelon, chunks

  • 4 oz Singers Vegan Caesar mix

  • 2 oz Fernie Distillers No. 9 Mine vodka

  • 1 oz lime juice

  • 4 ice cubes

  • 3 dashes Bittered Sling Cascade Celery Aromatic bitters

  • 1 watermelon, slice, to garnish


  • Rim a tulip glass with cocktail rim mixture. Blend watermelon chunks, Caesar mix, vodka, lime juice and ice in a blender until no chunks of ice remain, 45 seconds. Pour into prepared glass. Add bitters and garnish with watermelon slice.


If you’re a Caesar purist and want clam juice, Singers also makes non-vegan flavours: mildly spiced, spicy and smokin’. All are delicious!
