It’s summer, people!!! Are you having fun? Well, I have just the thing to add to your fun. Seagram’s Ginger Ale!! Just in time for summer fun, Seagram’s is launching a “Good to be You” program! You can read all about it on their Facebook page, Seagram’s Ginger Ale Facebook Page. There is even a totally fun app that you can use to “stamp” a friend’s photo with the GTBU stamp.
Seagram’s Ginger Ale is the perfect beverage for any occasion! With its effervescent, invigorating taste, it’s great after a workout, when you’re winding down in the evening, or celebrating with friends.
When I learned that I was going to have the opportunity to review it, my mind immediately turned to cocktails, because that is just how my mind works! Unfortunately due to a tight time schedule, I am writing this blog post at 9:00am in the morning, not exactly cocktail hour.
But I didn’t let that stop me; Seagram’s Ginger Ale is so versatile, I could have had it simply poured over ice, but I chose a Shirley Temple. Oh my, did this bring back memories. Remember when you thought you were something drinking your Shirley Temple?
- .5 oz Grenadine
- 4 oz Seagram’s Ginger Ale
Add grenadine in a highball glass half-filled with ice cubes
Top with Seagram’s Ginger Ale.
Garnish with either a Maraschino cherry or an orange wedge.
Oh, it was delightful. Perfect for sipping while typing away.
Another thing I love about Seagram’s Ginger Ale is these cute little cans. They are 7.5 oz, perfect for mixing up a drink or two, or tossing in your lunch bag or gym bag. And even though it is much too early for me to begin cocktail hour, I did have a list of cocktails that I plan on trying, which I am generously sharing with you!
