The days are getting longer, and the weather is getting warmer! It’s time to put away the hot toddies and freshen things up with some citrusy favorites. For this month’s highlight of Texas spirits, we’re looking at Paula’s Texas Orange and Texas Lemon premium handmade liqueurs.
Inspired by the Italian countryside, Texas-native Paula Angerstein began distilling her delicious liqueurs in 2003. She was also the first woman in Texas licensed to distill spirits in the state. Since then, Paula’s liqueurs have become a Texas favorite.
Paula’s Texas Orange has a zesty orange flavor that is perfect for margaritas, while Paula’s Texas Lemon has a light, fresh lemon profile, reminiscent of limoncello.
