Relax with a laid-back Canada Day feast
Friday, Apr. 30, 2021
Canada’s birthday is one of our favourite days to celebrate. And what’s not to like? The weather’s beautiful, the barbecue is cranking and everything’s dressed in red and white.
This year, make Canada Day your chillest holiday on the calendar. Let us take care of the planning and prepping of your fave summertime eats while you focus on the festivities. Got your playlist queued up and your sunscreen on? Good! Now, here’s what’s on the menu.
Ultimate Canada Day Caesars
What better way to toast the Maple Leaf than with our national cocktail? First, stir up your favourite Caesar recipe with vodka, clam-tomato juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce, plus a pinch each from our Black Peppercorn Grinder and our Himalayan Sea Salt Grinder for extra sass. Then get ready for the fun.
Rim your glass with a savoury Caesar spice blend, add a celery stick or lemon wedge if you like, and turn your drinks into a nutritious snack (wink, wink) with some outrageous toppers. Our perfectly prepped and portioned apps make great garnishes — they’re savoury and satisfying, and they crank up the drama ever so tastefully on your drink. Try a little tenderloin with Beef and Bacon Skewers or get spicy with crispy Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Shooters®. For some surf-and-turf action, we like tender, smoky Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. Or splash out with our Garlic Shrimp or Lobster Tail Skewers.
Build-your-own dessert bar
We hope you’ve saved room for dessert! This Canada Day, make your meal ender as easy as pie — or squares, actually. Set up an all-star lineup of our Chocolate Chunk Buttercream Bars and oh-so-Canadian Nanaimo Bars to dress up just the way you like them. Set out red-and-white maple leaf sprinkles, multicolour chocolate chips or mini peanut butter cups and see how fancy you can make them. For kids (or kids at heart), serve the bars with pink milk to really get into the Canada Day spirit. Cheers, eh?
