Better known as the
"Superfruit" and the "The Thanksgiving Peacock", cranberry
is high in antioxidants and nutrient contents. Raw cranberries have moderate
levels of Vitamin C, dietary fiber and the essential dietary mineral, manganese,
as well as a balance profile of other essential micronutrients. Research
indicates they may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, urinary tract
infections, gum disease and ulcers.
Cranberry juice happens to be my
favorite due to its lush magenta color and its oomph factor. The little berries
always pack a nutritional punch.
Cranberries are grown in the
northeastern United States, Wisconsin, Washington and Oregon, as well as in
Canada. Massachusetts has the oldest cranberry story — some vines date to the
time of the Pilgrims. When colonists arrived in North America, they found a
cranberry that was twice the size of the berries they were used to back in
Europe, though just as tasty. (America has been super-sizing portions from the
very start.) Today, Wisconsin is the country's leading cranberry producer.
Cranberries are perfect, edible
jewels. They turn any drink into a showstopper. Raw cranberries are
mouth-puckeringly sour, which is why they're almost always paired with sugar or
some other sweetener such as maple syrup.
I lost my alcohol virginity to the
Bacardi Cranberry Breezer and trust me when I say IT-WAS-TOTALLY-WORTH-IT. I
was always skeptical about how alcohol would taste and refrained from drinking.
My friends told me that all of them tastes like a tonic. Boy! Cranberry breezer
was so damn different and amazingly appetizing. It became my favorite drink
instantly and I just couldn't get enough of it. It is perfectly smooth and the
flavor is totally balanced. Other flavors don't even come close to it.
It's the perfect combination of taste
and looks. I'll recommend each and every person who wants to have some fun and
chill out to try and start with a Bacardi Cranberry Breezer. The party will
suddenly be rocking if you follow my counsel mate. Cheers!
