The Foodism Backyard Party in partnership with Smirnoff

We celebrated 50 years of the Caesar – Canada's most loved cocktail – at Tastemaker.

In anticipation of National Caesar day on May 17th, and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Caesar, we hosted a Caesar-themed backyard party at this year's Tastemaker in partnership with Smirnoff Vodka. Hosted at Evergreen Brickworks, Tastemaker attendees were given the ultimate Caesar experience. Guests were invited to get creative with Sip Bar to create a 'build your own Caesar bar', packed full of every Canadian Caesar garnish imaginable.

Guests also had the chance to enter our contest to win a Big Green Egg MiniMax – their most compact and versatile piece of equipment – a grill, smoker and an oven all in one. If you missed us at Tastemaker, you can still enter our contest here.

Once each guest had received their Smirnoff Vodka Caesar and added their garnishes from Sip Bar, they had the chance to take the perfect picture for the 'gram against our photo wall. Or if they were so inclined, they could relax in our Muskoka chairs around the fire pit. For those feeling more energetic, there were giant Jenga and Connect four games to play with on the lawn. And all the while they were hanging in our backyard, guests had the opportunity to munch on Caesar flavoured popcorn from Eatable and try both an original and lime flavoured hot sauce from Chetty's Hot Sauce.
