New Holland Brewing Co. | Emily Haines
I am not a professional bartender. I am not a budding mixologist. I am not a craft cocktail columnist.
I am, however, a woman who loves a good margarita.
And it’s because of my love of this tasty cocktail, that I got abnormally excited about the launch of our new orange liqueur - Clockwork Orange. (Hint: Hitting shelves June 1!)
As the person who types up press releases and the like, it’s easy to wax poetic about the rich, deep flavors of our whiskey program or our artfully crafted gin and its twelve-botanical blend or how craft daiquiris made with our rum make summer on the lake pretty much perfect. But orange liqueur has some preconceived notions about it and there aren’t very many American-made craft versions out there.
So, I took home our Pub recipe for a scratch margarita along with some Clockwork Orange and Hatter Royale Hopped Whiskey and thought there’s really no better way to explain this spirit than through one of my favorite cocktails.
