I was enjoying Taiwan’s best poutine at Whalen’s recently when Alex plopped what looked like the Canadian brunch staple down in front of me.
No I sez.
Yup says the Dawg.
Where, how stammered meself.
Well he wouldn’t answer me until I’d imbibed.
Damn I missed that. For years Clamato was my wake up call, my whizbee. Truly one of the finest cocktails ever invented, makes drinking Vodka at 11AM look healthy, and surprisingly delicious considering it is, after all, tomato and clam juice.
I know, the non-Canadians amongst you just threw up in your mouth a little. I know I did when The Keg hired me for my first bartending gig and introduced me to this heavenly creation. But 1 snort and I was a fan for life.
Clamato appeared briefly on the Costco shelves a few years back, but like all good things Costcoian, it quickly come to an end.
So Whalen, where you getting this from and don’t tell me you got a guy.
I got a guy.
Now here is the kicker. His “guy” is importing a powdered version of the Mott’s classic.
Disbelievingly, I sip again.
He shows me.
Well folks, the long and the short of it is: now I got a guy too.
And so do you. Me.
PM me if you want some pouches of perfection.
I’ll be sipping on a Tequila Caesar once the yardarm shadow is taller than its soul.
I’ve used the powder in burger mix (AWESOME!!) and will also be trying it in a salad dressing and marinade in the near future. Really versatile behind the bar and in the kitchen.
