A summer barbecue isn’t complete without a Caesar, and when it comes to making it the best- the OG mix does it well. Set up a Caesar station with Mott’s® Clamato® for the ultimate Canadian cocktail. We’re talkin’ The Original, Extra Spicy, The Works, Pickled Bean, Lime and their new premium mix, Mott’s® Clamato® Reserve, made with natural ingredients (if you’re really looking to wow). Toss in some garnishes (we’re talkin’ everything from the basic celery to bacon, shrimp, and pomegranate), some rimmers, some lime (gotta make it stick!), and a few bottles of alcohol, and you’ve got yourself a crowd-pleasing station, sure to steal the BBQ show! 

A Looft Lighter

Forget the scary lighter fluid, a Looft Lighter is the quickest and cleanest way to start your fire. The lighter superheats air to set your charcoal ablaze so you can enjoy your food without the nerve-wracking setup. Plus it’s a gadget you’ll keep around for years to come. 

Meat from ACME Meat Market

We know that meat is one of the top things on your list. Let ACME Meat Market take care of you with its amazing selection of natural, farm-fresh, free-range, and locally sourced meats. Whether you want beef, pork, chicken or something else, they have you covered.

To ensure that things are as fresh as possible when you throw them on the barbecue you’ll definitely want to have a good cooler. Might as well get two, one for drink supplies and one for food. Because YETI Coolers are not only the highest quality but also pretty dang stylish. 

Produce from Edmonton Farmers’ Markets

What’s a barbeque without delicious veggie skewers? Stock up on peppers, mushrooms and more from one of Edmonton’s amazing farmers’ markets. You’ll get the freshest produce and support our local farmers directly. It doesn’t get better than that. 

Grab those items and you’re sure to have the perfect summer barbeque. A Caesar in one hand and the other on the bbq, talk about multi-tasking! Don’t feel like whipping up a Caesar, but still wanna enjoy the deliciousness? Mott’s® Clamato® has got it covered with 8 ready to drink pre-mixed flavours, including their new Sriracha flavour!
