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. 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. 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.
BACARDI® Mixers is a premium line of non-alcoholic mixers available in 10 fl. oz cans in the frozen juice aisle. With seven easy-to-make flavors to choose from – including Strawberry Daiquiri, Margarita, and Piña Colada – there are endless ways to make your next party come together instantly!
