a toast

Sylvia Schur passed away today.  She isn’t someone I knew personally, in fact, I’d never heard of her until I read her obituary in the paper this morning.  But as a Canadian, I should have known her name.

She invented Clamato juice.  Yes, a juice that combines clam and tomato juices.  And when you combine clamato with vodka, and a few other things you get Canada’s answer to the Bloody Mary.  yum. 

As a salute to Sylvia, here is a recipe from www.drinknation.com

  • 1 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 6 oz. Mott’s (Mott’s)
  • 1 stick Celery
  • 1 dash Celery Salt
  • 1 wedge Lime
  • 1 dash Pepper, black
  • 2 splashes Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 splashes Worcestershire Sauce

Rim glass using lime & celery salt. Fill glass 1/3 with ice, add vodka, clamato and a splash each of worcestershire sauce and tabasco. Add a dash of celery salt and pepper, garnish with lime & celery.
