It’s Friday and you know what that means, it is time to put away those TPS reports and belly up to the bar for a cocktail. For some of you, that means breaking out your Hawthorne strainer, a jigger, and Mutineer Magazine’s Cocktail Friday.
This week we have a recipe for the Citizen Orange cocktail which highlights NOLET’S Silver gin and was created by Mark Drew, VP of Hospitality and Brand Development for Critical Mass, a cocktail, hospitality, and strategy consulting firm out of New York City.
“Originally we created the cocktail to celebrate The Netherlands participation in the World Cup,” said Mark. “Orange being the national team’s color we wanted to incorporate orange in both the taste and the look. As the quintessential Dutch Gin we decided to base our ingredients around the fruit forward and floral elements of NOLET’S Silver and combine them with fresh orange oils and zest.”
Check out these exciting ingredients and jumpstart your liquor locker on this Cocktail Friday.
