“The Ticket” Caesar recognized with $25,000 Grand Prize
, Oct. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – Saskatoon’s Snooker Shack is taking home bragging rights and the $25,000 grand prize after its cocktail, The Ticket, was named the 2022 Mott’s® Clamato® Best Caesar in Town®! The Snooker Shack, a lively billiard room and community staple for over 34 years, was among ten Canadian bars and eateries vying for the coveted title.
“To be rewarded for something we’re this passionate about is a dream,” says Snooker Shack owner, Allan Tirk. “We’re so grateful to the Saskatoon community for supporting us and to Mott’s® Clamato® for making it all possible. This prize money will be put to great use as we renovate and elevate our space to make Snooker Shack the best it’s ever been.”
Allan’s love and passion for smoking unique ingredients and infusing them into elevated cocktails inspired his winning cocktail. The Ticket Caesar features Fat Washed vodka, Bourbon-infused Worcheshire Sauce, Al’s very own hot sauce and, of course, Mott’s® Clamato® — all garnished with a house-made, wasabi-dusted stick of beef jerky!
