California Olive Committee Debuts Four New Cocktail Recipes Starring California Ripe Olives

FRESNO, Calif., May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- California Ripe Olives have always been a tasty addition to a variety of dishes and now they've proved their rightful place in craft cocktails. Often thought of as solely a garnish, California Ripe Olives take center stage in new custom cocktail recipes developed by the California Olive Committee.

The Back Porch Beer Cocktail was inspired by Freda Ehmann, inventor of the California Ripe Olive process, and her method of curing olives in barrels on her back porch

The California Ripe Olive industry teamed up with mixologists/bloggers Jordan Catapano and Jocelyn Dunn Muhlbach of This Girl Walks into a Bar to develop the four signature cocktails that pay homage to the rich and unique history of the California Ripe Olive industry.

"With the trend of craft cocktails continuing to gain popularity, we were excited to explore innovative and unique ways California Ripe Olives fit into the movement," said Denise Junqueiro, Director of Programs and Services, California Olive Committee. "The result: four fabulous, on-trend cocktail recipes that showcase the versatility and flavor of California Ripe Olives. Plus, who knew that the olive brine would be such a delicious addition as well."  

Warmer weather means many are turning to a refreshing sipper, and with that in mind, Jordan and Jocelyn looked to create innovative, thirst-quenching cocktails perfect for happy hour. Beer cocktails continue to rise in popularity and the Back Porch Beer Cocktail is a fusion of flavors that combines beer, tequila, olive brine and pico de gallo, for an added kick. While fruit infusions have been popular the past few years, a savory, herbal infusion is what makes the Sunshine Infusion Cocktail a stand out. Add in the cucumber-wrapped olive stuffed with goat cheese, and it's a cocktail and snack all in one.

Two classic cocktails are spruced up thanks to California Ripe Olives. Bloody Mary fans will like the Cali Brunch Cocktail while martini fans will enjoy Freda's Martini, a California Ripe Olive riff on the classic martini, named after Freda Ehmann, the 19th century housewife responsible for creating the California Ripe Olive.

Of course, it's important to have some nibbles to enjoy with cocktails and the California Ripe Olive industry has hundreds of recipes to share on its website www.calolive.org. In addition to easy-to-prepare recipes, there are videos that share the farm to fork story of the California Ripe Olive as well as other general information about the industry.

About the California Olive Committee

The California Olive Committee (COC) is a grower-funded program established by a Federal Marketing Order in 1965 to administer marketing, research, inspection and compliance programs on behalf of the ripe olive industry. The COC is comprised of two olive canners and thousands of family farmers, who raise olives on about 27,000 acres of orchards that crisscross the warm inland valleys of California.

After one sip of the Sunshine Infusion Cocktail, you’ll be convinced that dill and California Ripe Olives were destined to be together

 

For your next weekend brunch gathering with family and friends, treat them to a savory and spicy Cali Brunch Cocktail

Freda Ehmann was the mastermind behind the unique process for California Ripe Olives and we’re celebrating her innovation with a slight twist on the classic dirty martini
