    Default Cranberry juice sucks!

    Yep. It's official. I don't care what the Hell juice they mix it with, no
    matter how much I may love that juice, once they add the cran-juice......

    It sucks!

    My fave juices.... blackberry, Pomegranite, black cherry, etc.... Once
    Ocean Spray gets hold of 'em, may as well use that combo-juice to hose out
    camel stables. Even booze don't help. Vodka, rum, whiskey. Enough to make
    a wino go on the wagon.

    Hear me, oh mighty Some-kinda Spray. As far as I'm concerned, it will
    always be bog wiz.

    IMO, it sucks when it is miced with other juices. Personally, I liek
    cranberry cocktail I have tried straight cranberry juice. It is potent
    stuff, not for the faint of heart.

    Where'd you get that? I was happy to see it in stores but
    I was disappointed to see it was mixed with grape juice.
    Didn't like it. I know it's got a lot of sugar, but I do like
    cranberry juice cocktail.

    Still, I'd be interested to try plain cranberry juice. Is it the
    usual answer, health food store?

    Around here the regular bigger grocery stores carry plain, unsweetened
    cranberry concentrate in 1 liter glass bottles. Wow, it is strong
    stuff! I find regular cranberry cocktails to be just way too sweet,
    but i was surprised how much sweetener i had to add to this stuff to
    make it drinkable. It does make an awesome refreshing addition to
    gingerale though. It's a bit pricey, so i only buy it once in a
    while, but it's nice to be able to control the amount of sugar or
    other sweeteners.

    We got ours from the Iroquois Cranberry Growers during the Bala
    Cranberry Festival. Bala is in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada.

    I love cranberry juice straight up. :-)
    I often dilute it tho' just to save money.

    My #1 favorite drink is a cranberry juice margarita:

    Juice from one small lime (or two key limes)
    2 shots tequila
    1 shot triple sec
    10 to 12 oz. cranberry juice

    Yum! ;-d

    You could juice your own and freeze it. :-)

    If I look hard enough, I can find pure cranberry juice at the grocery
    store.

    Dried cranberry's make one hell of a tea. I can get them in the bulk
    section at Central Market.

    No kidding ... I will look from now on, but I don't hold out
    much hope.

    That's what I understand.

    I only like the Ocean Spray, I find the other brands too sweet.
    They're probably the same, but they taste different to me.
    I know the cocktail stuff has tons of sugar. I just drink a glass
    of it every few days, it's kind of refreshing.

    I'll look for it plain, thanks.

    Yikes! They grow cranberries in my state, too, you'd think
    I'd be able to find it. Maybe I'll keep my eyes open for a
    cranberry festival, I'm sure they have them. Thanks!

    I think it's worth the extra cost to use Cointreau instead of triple
    sec. Or Grand Marnier.
    Nothing like fresh lime though. It astounds me the crap they pass of
    as margarita at many Amerimex restaurants, and the swine not only
    happily suck it down, but vote for it as "best margarita" in polls.
    Many contain zero lime juice.

    Is it really better? I've been too cheap to try a comparison.

    > Nothing like fresh lime though.


    Absolutely.

    <lol> I won't argue with you there. Fortunately, "Grins" restaurant
    makes their "top drawer" margarita with the real stuff. I've watched
    them do the mix.

    I rarely drink "out" tho'. I mostly drink at home.

    You may have even walked right past it. The large local store we buy
    most of our stuff in has the 1 l glass jars. It is a smaller bottle and
    a very bland label so it is easy to miss.

    I don't know what it is around here, how many times do I
    see someone say Get this at any supermarket! Not any
    supermarket around here. I will look more carefully in the
    few stores I do visit. I'll look for the plain-ish label and the
    small bottle. Thanks.

    I like cranberry juice--not that I can drink it now. What *I*
    don't like is pomegranate juice. That ruins anything for me. (I
    have been known to cook with it though.)
