My Love Affair with Walter – A F&B Romance
It started off with a teasing photo on someone’s Facebook page, which lead to some tasty shots on another’s Instagram feed and then he was staring me down on a friends counter top. Next I knew there was an introduction, the anticipation and well, the rest as they say, is history…Are your cheeks burning yet? This is no 50 Shades of Grey storyline…it’s a love affair with Walter – Walter All-Natural Craft Caesar Mix that is.
Over the years I’ve always had a few go-to drinks that I use if ever in doubt traveling and a Caesar has usually been in the mix with a good Dirty Martini or Sidecar – the kind of drinks that usually one can make at any standard bar. But as I and my healthy minded community have realized over the years, the standard mix for Caesars is just kind of , well full of a lot of junk like MSG (gives me blinding headaches), artificial colours & flavours and usually a High-fructose Corn Syrup which really is wrong on so many levels for our bodies. This is why I was so excited to be able to try Walter Caesar Mix – so much better and so tasty!
Let’s break down the “Walter Difference”
- · 100% All-Natural Ingredients
- · NO MSG
- · NO Artificial Colours or Flavours
- · No High Fructose Corn Syrup
- · Made in Small Batch Production
- · Bottled in Premium Glass Bottles
- · Comes in 2 Flavours – Well Spiced or Mildly Spiced
- · It’s CANADIAN and launched by two fellow Vancouverites
All of these things honestly make an awesomely better tasting Caesar or straight up on its own if you like your tomato juice to have some zest and body!
I played around with the flavour and made up one heck of a tasty bevvie for myself on one of our now many snowy nights and this is what I came up with.
A good amount of Walter Well Spiced, some lime juice, some premium vodka, some tasty garnishes (home-made Daikon pickles, bacon, and cucumber – my own snacky topper). The perfect blend of seasoning for me in the Well Spiced and on other days I most likely would add in even more heat.
Currently you can find Walter at select BC and Ontario grocers, specialty food and gift shops, select restaurants and bars. For their complete, up-to-date list, visit their website at www.waltercaesar.com/find-us
I’m looking forward to my second hot date with Walter’s alter ego – Walter Mildly Spiced – just the right speed for a long week, snowed in on the proverbial “Hump” Day. Now just to sort out the tasty garnishes or perhaps think up some alternative recipes to use this amazing new all natural product in to further extend the tasty goodness of Walter.
Go out and get some soon – it’s now a regular in my house for sure!
Much foodie love,

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.

“Happiness is to be found along the way,
not at the end of the road,
for then the journey is over
and it is too late.
this minute is the day,
the minute for each of us to sense the fact that life is good,
with all of its trials and troubles,
and perhaps more interesting because of them.”

What is Canada Day?
We, as a nation are still very young as a country – just a mere 146 years old in comparison with other great nations but we acknowledge and recognize the day we became our own nation every year.
According to the latest info recorded in Wikipedia:
“CANADA DAY:(French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire Originally called Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as among Canadians internationally.”
What do we do on Canada Day?
Many communities across the country of Canada will host organized celebrations for Canada Day, usually consisting of outdoor public events, such as parades, carnivals, festivals, barbecues, air and maritime shows, fireworks, and free musical concerts, as well as citizenship ceremonies for new citizens to Canada.
Internationally, Canadian expats will organize Canada Day activities in their local area on or near Canada Day. Many celebrations have been held at Trafalgar Square—the location of Canada House—in London, England; initiated by the Canadian community in the United Kingdom, and endorsed by the Canadian High Commission. Celebrations have also take place in Hong Kong, entitled Canada D’eh and held on June 30 at Lan Kwai Fong, where over 10,000 have been known to participate. Overseas in Afghanistan, where members of the Canadian Forces mark the holiday at their base and in Mexico, at the Royal Canadian Legion in both Chapala, and the Canadian Club in Ajijic. In China, Canada Day celebrations are held by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai at Bund Beach. These are just a few locations globally that participate in celebrating Canada’s birthday!
