Country Orchard – BACARDI

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own.
Country Orchard from BACARDI - One of the coolest things about being a food blogger are the opportunities that drop in your lap sometimes.  I received an email from my main ad network asking for submissions to work with BACARDI® on a new product called BACARDI® Mixers.  I had to fill out a looooong survey and if selected they would make a drink for me.  A drink….for ME?  Well, they picked me, and when I opened the email with my signature Farmgirl Gourmet drink, I was stoked.  All of the flavors I love, mixed together in a cocktail – Country Orchard. Country Orchard by BACARDI® - You may ask yourself how strawberry daiquiri mix will blend with rum and wine, but I will just tell you now that my party guests went gaga over this drink.  Begging for the recipe even.  It was tough to keep it a secret, but now the cat’s out of the bag – so to speak. During our barbecue, I gave away cool BACARDI® Mixers hats, muddlers, recipe booklets and even a blender (which went to a lucky couple who are just moving in together).  It was a ton of fun, until it rained of course.  We moved the party inside and continued to sip on Country Orchard while the rain watered my garden. Country Orchard by BACARDI® - The BACARDI® Mixers are so versatile that I am looking forward to concocting all kinds of interesting mixed drinks this summer.  I currently have the Pina Colada mix, which is made with real fruit juices, in my freezer, and it’s beckoning me every time I open it up.

    We had an awesome party and tried out some other cocktail recipes – so yummy and SO easy with the BACARDI® Mixers. Just put the ingredients in the blenders and zip! Drink up! I love that BACARDI® Mixers are made with real fruit juice – they sure taste fresher than the shelf-stable mixers! I’ve got my freezer stocked with all the yjmmy flavors so I can whip up amazing cocktails whenever the mood strikes or friends stop by.

    I did the same thing but I’m not posting until tomorrow morning; still I was pretty amazed at both how much they were on the money with the cocktail and how much I really, really loved it too! Now that I know how successful they are I’m going to be on the lookout for more of them! Looks like you guys had fun; I know we did.

      I know…I was super stoked. It’s so tasty and I can’t even drink wine. I popped some excedrin and dove in though. Delish!
