Vienna, VA (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Just in time for another hot summer, U.S. Apple Association (USApple) – which represents apple growers and producers nationwide – has mixed up “Apple Ginger Chillers,” a simple and refreshing mock-tail that tingles the taste buds with a delicious trio of apple cider, ginger beer and vanilla bean syrup ingredients.
“With The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicting a hotter than normal summer nationwide, what better way to find refreshment than with a cool beverage featuring our all-American fruit?” said Wendy Brannen, USApple’s Director of Consumer Health & Public Relations. “And, because Apple Ginger Chillers call for two cups of apple cider or juice, you’re not only filling up on a delicious drink, but also you’re getting two servings of daily recommended fruits.”
