- Why You'll Love it
Surf Rider has all the flavors of Pina Colada with a touch of Barbados cherry (also called acerola cherry). The sweetness of pineapple and coconut are rounded out by the tart cherry and orange. Leaving you with a blend that has a natural sweetness from the fruits and a satisfying tang at the end.
- Why it's Good for You
Like the acai berry, the Barbados acerola cherry is full of potent antioxidants known as anthocyanins which gives the superfruit its bright red color. Baobab isn’t the only superfruit known for it’s high vitamin C content! Acerola’s primary superpower is its high vitamin C content. One cup of acerola cherries packs 1,700mg of vitamin C. You’d have to eat 16 cups of oranges to get that amount!
- Tea Cocktail Recommendations
Surf Rider has the flavors of a pina colada. So rum shines here. Wine also does a fantastic job making a quick cocktail. Steep ¼ glass surf rider in 16oz boiling water for 5 to 20 minutes. This will make a concentrate. Fill a glass with ice, then fill a quarter full with surf rider. Add rum and top with soda water. Sweeten to taste. For a wine tea cocktail or teamosa, fill glass with ice. Pour ¼ glass full of surf rider. Top with sparkling wine.
For a non-alcoholic option, fill your glass with ice. Fill half of your glass with surf rider concentrate. Transfer contents of the glass to a blender. Add a scoop of coconut ice cream. Blend to perfection. If you want to get crazy, before you do any of the above, cube pineapples, roll in brown sugar and butter. Add a pinch of salt to the mix. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F or until they look candied. Let cool. Add some of these to the bottom of the glass when you transfer your drink back to the glass. Serve with a wide straw so you can sip the candied pineapple pieces with your Surf Rider Shake.
