(NAPSA) - White cranberries have made their way from the country bogs to the big city by way of a hot, new take on a cocktail favorite-the White Cosmopolitan. Ocean Spray's White Cranberry Juice Drink is the star of this oh-so-chic, wouldn't-be-seen-without-it new drink that's making a splash at cocktail hours everywhere.
Whether it's garnished with an edible orchid or cranberry swizzle stick, this white-hot drink is clearly different than its traditional rosy counterpart. From its lighter color to cleaner, smoother taste, this new Cosmo on the block is sure to kick off a cocktail craze.
The White Cosmopolitan was originally born at Sugar Bar in New York City, from the creative mixing mind of owner/bartender George Angelet. His recipe calls for Ocean Spray White Cranberry Juice Drink, vodka, triple sec, sugar-water and lime juice. Home renditions can bypass the sugar-water ingredient, if preferred.
This season marks only the second white cranberry harvest. Picked just a few weeks earlier than red cranberries, white cranberries are used to create a juice drink that's less tart and substantially smoother than traditional red. From smoothies to cocktails or straight up, White Cranberry Juice Drink has quickly grown in popularity with all age groups.
