Curaçao, Triple Sec, Cointreau & Grand Marnier are all different styles of orange liqueur, each with their own secret recipe. Curaçao usually has a rum base, Cointreau uses both sweet & bitter oranges and sugar beet alcohol, and Grand Marnier is made from a mix of Cognac, distilled bitter orange essence, and sugar. At least one style of orange liqueur is typically stocked in a bar because it provides a delicious fruit flavor, complexity and balanced sweetness to cocktails.
As a Craft Distillery in California we are only allowed to serve cocktails with liqueurs that we make in house, which led us to develop our orange liqueur recipe using Shorebreak Vodka. Below is the recipe we used if you want to try and make it at home! If you end up making this recipe, let us know how it turned out!

Huntington Beach has been experiencing a bit of May-gray, but our forecast is calling for lots of sunshine and you’ll be ready with this delicious Mint Julep. Although Mint Juleps are most often associated with the Kentucky Derby and served in frosted silver or pewter cups, we like to add our crushed ice to a chilled rocks glass and enjoy them throughout all of Summer.
The best thing about the Mint Julep is how each sip is slightly different than the last. As the crushed ice melts, the strong & boozy cocktail turns into a refreshing summer sipper. Feel free to have fun with the recipe and change up the sweetener to maple syrup, crème de cacao, or sweet liquor.Read More

There is prep time involved so make sure you have all of the ingredients (especially our Shorebreak Vodka) before you begin. Cheers!Read More
