MONJU'S LARAHA, CURACAO de 1851. A FRENCH QUARTER ORIGINAL, REDISCOVERED by the family and now featured at Green Growler. Why are we featuring Monju’s Laraha? Because in my world that’s what Family (My oldest Brothers, Daughters, Husbands, Brother) does, we support each other.
So what is Curaco? Curaçao is a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the bitter orange Laraha, a citrus fruit, grown on the Dutch island of Curaçao. Curaçao can be sold in numerous forms, though the most common is the orange-hued dry Curaçao. This recipe was originally distilled By his Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Antonio Monju during the 1850's in French Quarter of New Orleans. This very special recipe has its origins back to the vineyards of Isla De Menorca in the Spanish Mediterranean then to New Orleans in the 1850s. I am honored to support my extended family in bring this historic liquor back to life.
To celebrate the release of this new orange liquor Monju’s Laraha and Green Growler will be giving away free samples of the Manju Mia Tia during the Doc Holliday Saints and Sinners Festival in Denison, TX on April 30th from 10AM to 6PM. We also feature The Monju Morning Crush and Monju Tropical Crush for you fruity enjoyment.
