Cheer Up Sleepy Jean
Well, life isn't always the easiest now is it? I try and eat enough fiber, exercise, brush and floss, be kind to others, read novels and the New York Times, take my multi-vitamin and stay in touch with old friends. But sometimes it gets to be too much. And that is when you need to pop the top on an ice cold bottle of Cheerwine.
Yup, Cheerwine! Haven't heard of it? Cheerwine is a Tarheel Tradition, a soft drink with a "rich burgundy color" and a refreshing black cherry flavor. Cheerwine was born in Salisbury, North Carolina, in 1917, and has been a family business ever since. Old-fashioned sodas are in vogue right now, and Cheerwine is slowly making inroads throughout the Southeastern states, bound for a market near you. In the meantime, you can mail-order a sixer of glass bottles--drink a couple, then log on to the company's website, www.cheerwine.com, and try some of the Cheerwine recipes (no, really--Cheerwine ice cream, anyone?)
