Get Juicy With Sir Juice This Summer…plus a GIVEAWAY

We are edging a little bit closer to Summer every day.  It’s still quite chilly here in Centurion (and the same goes for Cape Town as we only just got back last night) but I find myself thinking about Spring and Summer a lot more these days.  Maybe it’s because I am trying to ‘will’ the cold away or perhaps it is because I can feel the weather warming up the teensiest bit (even if it is only by 1 degree Celsius).

I’ll just come out and say it:  I am SO over Winter right now and I am yearning for bright nails, watermelon slices, comfy flip-flops, pink lemonade, a blooming garden and…fruity slushies!

I’m not completely back in the swing of things with regards to the blog (and my Youtube channel), check out this post here to read more on why I’m taking a break.  But, I was contacted by the PR company who represents Sir Juice and when they asked me to do a giveaway on the blog for you guys, I just couldn’t resist.  Especially since I can pick THREE winners who will each win a Sir Juice hamper containing their new juices as well as…wait for it…a Zoku Slush & Shake Maker!

Zoku Slush And Shake Maker

If you are not sure what a Zoku Slush & Shake Maker is, then take a look at this blog post I did last year called Peach & Pomegranate Iced Tea Slushie.  It’s basically the most user-friendly, compact slushie maker in the history of the world.  For additional info on the slushie maker, take a look at this page.

Let’s have a squiz at the 2 new fruit juices from Sir Juice, launching this Summer:

Sir Juice

Sir Juice focuses on sourcing the best quality ingredients available and processing them as little as possible.  This method means that you get more of the goodness of the whole fruit and it’s the very reason the juice tastes like eating a piece of fruit.  Sir Juice uses only the best juicing fruit South Africa has to offer and since they use a pulp-based production process, it ensures the end product contains as much of the original flavour and nutrition of the whole fruit as possible.

Pink Lemonade is a juice with a difference – it combines top-class lemon pulp with a touch of raspberry juice & a very special ingredient, Rose Water.  The rose water used in Sir Juice’s Pink Lemonade is made from the petals of the Rosa Demascena (a Damask Rose for us normal people), submerged in water and distilled under special conditions.

Sir Juice will be launching Pink Lemonade this November in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and will be donating 25 cents from every bottle of Pink Lemonade sold, to PinkDrive (the national breast cancer educational and fundraising NGO).  These proceeds will specifically be used to support the PinkDrive Mammography Unit and PinkDrive Educational Unit. These are free facilities, which will be touring the country with the message that ‘early detection saves lives’.

The second juice that Sir Juice is launching, is called the Harrismith Apple.  This new juice is produced using traditional juicing means similar to how a traditional apple press works.  This means it’s unfiltered – so it’s cloudy and delicious like apple juice should be.   As part of the traditional apple press process, 4 variants of Harrismith apples are squeezed through a muslin cloth with an apple press, then a small dash of filtered water is added to prevent the taste being too sweet. No concentrates, flavours, aromas, added enzymes, filtration or heating takes place, which ensures a much richer and more complex flavour, giving you more of the original fruit.

So today I have 3 hampers to give away to 3 lucky Pink Peonies blog readers.  The winners will each win 3 litres of Sir Juice (you will be one of the first to try their 2 new juices), as well as a Zoku Slush And Shake Maker.  This prize is guaranteed to get you excited for Summer!
