Clamato juice, the main ingredient of a Bloody Caesar, is a mixture of tomato juice and clam broth, which sounds offensive but is actually tasty and flavorful. Clamato is available at any supermarket or convenience store.
Although Bloody Caesars are not common in the US, they are a popular cocktail in Canada and can be ordered at any bar or restaurant and bought pre-mixed in cans or bottles where liquor is sold.
