One hundred percent cherry juice is an easy way to add a powerful antioxidant punch along with great taste and vibrant color to everything from a morning pick-me-up to an evening cocktail. Now, science shows cherries may help reduce inflammation and risk factors for heart disease and help relieve arthritis pain. Cherries are also one of the few known, researched food sources of the antioxidant melatonin, which can help aid with sleep and jet lag.
The “Red Eye Mojito” is an eye-catching twist on the Brazilian classic, perfect for cocktail hour or special occasion entertaining. And the “Red Alert” blends lip-smacking cherry juice with another trendy and healthful ingredient – coconut water. Gaining popularity as a cooking ingredient and sports drink (for its high potassium and mineral content) this blend is great for cooling off after a workout or as a morning wake-up drink.
