During the holiday season, anything red and green is most definitely in vogue — clothes, decorations, food and certainly cocktails!
Cranberries are the ideal candidate as the official berry of the holiday season. Besides meeting the colour standard, cranberries offer a refreshing, bitter flavour — a quality used in a lot of beverages during the cold winter months — and also have strong anti-oxidant qualities … making it even easier to enjoy these cocktails!
Art of the Cranberry: Why local is better
Today’s consumer wants the best possible product, with the best possible effect on the world around us, so shopping locally is becoming increasingly important. Purchasing products close to home ensures freshness, a lack of preservatives and helps our local economy. That is what the Terra Beata cranberry farm located in Lunenburg, is all about. Founded in 1998, Terra Beata sports a 12-acre cranberry farm, as well as receiving berries from more than 20 other Atlantic Canadian farms, to provide a range of berries, juices and gourmet preserves. In 2013, Terra Beata received BRC food quality certification and was named the Taste of Nova Scotia Producer of the Year — they certainly know the ‘Art of the Cranberry’.
