Start your New Year off right with a Winter OR-G (or orgy if you prefer).
OR-G is a brand new liqueur (or at least to the U.S.A.) from France and is the first liqueur to use Permission fruit. Persimmon is an exotic tropical fruit that brings a deliciousness that can’t be found in any other spirit. Even using a small amount in a simple cocktail adds a completely new twist.
In OR-G’s own words:
OR-G is a tempting blend of Ultra-Premium Vodka and Persimmon mingling with Papaya, Mango and Lime Juices. Created by Master Spirit maker Jean Marc Daucourt, OR-G’s exotic design is not only intended to deliver amazing taste, but adds a sensuality to the drinking experience. OR-G is also highly mixable, lending itself to a variety of tempting cocktail creations. At 17% Alcohol by Volume, OR-G is perfect by itself or ready to be mixed with your favorite Spirit, to add that little extra pop you need to get the party started.
Without a doubt, OR-G is an interesting liqueur that at the very least is worth a try. If you’re not feeling all that creative, here’s a simple concoction to get you started:
.5 oz Stones Ginger wine
1.5 oz OR-G
Muddle 1/4 lime and a generous slice of fresh persimmon fruit on the bottom of shaker with 0.5 oz of stones ginger wine. Add ice and 1.5 oz of OR-G. Shake and pour over rocks in a collins glass add soda and a dash of cardamom bitters.
