Mild or spicy, salty or sweet, gar­nished or plain-Jane, there’s a cae­sar out there for ev­ery­one. We asked six lo­cal com­peti­tors (glad­i­a­tors, if you will) to give us their best shot—and, ac­cord­ing to our panel of ex­perts, these are the ones that reign supreme.

The Lib­erty Dis­tillery

Lib­erty Dis­tillery’s “del­i­cate” cae­sar—gin, Clam­ato, fresh lemon, Worces­ter­shire, Tabasco, grated horse­rad­ish, celery-salt rim—hit all the right notes. “There’s noth­ing about it that’s su­per ag­gres­sive,” said Po­var­chook. “It’s just re­ally great across the board.” The re­fresh­ing hit of ex­tra citrus also had our judges claim­ing they could drink this one any day, any time. From $9, 1494 Old Bridge St., the­lib­er­ty­dis­tillery.com

HONOURABLE MEN­TION Earls

“This one looks muddy,” said a judge upon first see­ing the drink’s dark hue. Made with Clam­ato, a se­cret blend of hot sauces and pickle brine, it was the “most in­ter­est­ing” and “weird” cae­sar of the day. “It isn’t what I was ex­pect­ing, but it’s still re­ally good,” said one panel­list. From $8, mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions, earls.ca
