The creative chefs at the Matt Haley Companies have added a bright and crisp Apple Ginger flavor to its line of Matt’s Homemade Sodas. The seasonal flavor joins three standard sodas: Lemon Berry, Strawberry Basil Chili and Black & White (cracked black pepper, white balsamic vinegar, fresh bay leaves and palm sugar) and a specially formulated quinine water. You can try out these new sodas at all eight of the company’s Delaware restaurants, and even try them as mixers in signature cocktails. One of the more popular is Haley’s Comet, made with Seacrets Dark Rum, lime juice and Apple Ginger Soda. The sodas are also available at Painted Stave Distilling in Smyrna, Seacrets in OC, Waterman’s Seafood Company and Sunset Grille, also in Ocean City.
The soft drink line has proven so popular that The Matt Haley Companies plans to open a bottling facility in West Rehoboth, which will bring jobs to the area. “We want to create a flavor for each season, much like brewing companies create seasonal ales and beers,” says Scott Kammerer, president and CEO of MHC. “Along with our chef-driven cuisine, it’s another way to add freshness and an artisanal touch to our menus.”
I am addicted to the Black & White. Think ginger ale kicked up to notches heretofore unbeknownst!
