|Flintstones, table for two|
So, what really goes with a great steak? Well, lots of things. But, in particular I've grown particularly fond of a drink that a restaurant called The Keg (located in Canada) serves with their steaks. It's the Bloody Caesar.
The Bloody Caesar
Good Vodka (I use Dripping Springs Vodka)
Clamato Juice (stay with me, here)
Fresh Ground Pepper
So, here's the fun part. There isn't a "recipe". It's really to taste, so I'll just give guidelines. You can rim the glass with a lime and celery salt if you like. I usually don't. I just add the celery salt into the drink at the end, but you can also do both which I will do for parties when presentation kind of counts.
Fill the glass with crushed ice (regular ice is ok, too). For the liquid ingredients, put the vodka in first. This gives you the ability to regulate the amount of alcohol. Next, add the Worcestershire sauce. I put around a couple of teaspoons and sometimes up to a tablespoon depending on the mood I'm in. I really don't measure, so I'm guessing here. Follow that with a couple of dashes of Tobasco, then top up with Clamato Juice. I really do NOT like Clamato all that much, but it really is great in this drink. Add a few dashes of celery salt and a few grinds of fresh ground pepper. Stir well and enjoy with a great rare (or medium-rare) steak. Cheers!
