Holland: 0 for the Trophy, 2 for the Fans
It may be a little too soon to ease the pain of Holland supporters. However, I think it’s all about perspective. Do you see the glass empty or half full?
If you take into account Ketel One’s debut of Ketel One Oranje, the newest member in their vodka portfolio, you might perceive the cup to be a never ending flow of consolation and/or excitement.
The company teamed up with New York mixologist, Giuseppe Gonzalez, to concoct a home team, inspired cocktail. “Clockwork Oranje," has been featured on the Ketel One page on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/KetelOne) since July 9, 2010 and will remain posted for fans to reference and toast one another during their Sunday soccer celebrations. What a score for the Dutch!
Oh but wait, there’s another goal on the horizon. The “Ketel One Kickoff” can be added to your beverage reserve list as you watch players head back to their club teams to do battle. I have listed both recipes below. Bottoms Up!
Just add 1 1/2 oz. Ketel One Oranje, 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice and 1 oz. white creme de cacao to a Collins glass filled with crushed iced. Then stir with a swizzle stick and garnish with an orange wedge.
