Dory Deli serves up the Official Cocktail of Newport Beach

Dory Deli and Visit Newport Beach have announced Dawn Patrol as the Official Cocktail of Newport Beach. The libation, which launched April 11, puts a twist on the classic espresso martini with the addition of ingredients inspired by the salt and sand of the coastline. The recipe features Flecha Azul Reposado Tequila, a fresh-pulled shot of MoonGoat espresso, housemade brown sugar and sea salt syrup, and coffee and vanilla liqueurs. The finishing touch is a creamy chocolate and crunchy biscuit Pocky stick garnish.

“The espresso martini is experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity worldwide, especially in markets like Orange County where quality coffee and coffeehouses are favored,” said Ashleigh Wiehl, Dory Deli marketing director. “For a busy town with a work hard, play hard mentality, we knew it was the perfect template to use for the signature cocktail of Newport Beach.”

Each ingredient was carefully thought out from the locally roasted MoonGoat espresso and beach-inspired brown sugar and sea salt syrup, to the additive-free, award-winning Flecha Azul Reposado Tequila. Dawn Patrol was one of four candidates for the city’s official cocktail, which was tasted and voted on by a panel of judges including Visit Newport Beach’s President & CEO Gary Sherwin and Senior Vice President & CMO Ashley Johnson, accompanied by Mario Marovic and Andrew Gabriel, co-owners of Lounge Group and Dory Deli.

Dawn Patrol is launched with the help of Mark Wahlberg, principal investor of Flecha Azul Tequila, who will be introducing it in a special Instagram and Facebook video. “So, you know what happens when an iconic espresso martini meets iconic tequila? Magic,” said Wahlberg. “The next time I’m in Newport Beach, you better come down and meet me at Dory Deli and order one of these Dawn Patrols. Trust me.”
