Cranberry and me, a breezer of a time with Bacardi BrEeZaH

Bacardi entered my life with a bang.  I was off alcohol for 3 months and was just itching to get back to the fast lane when a friend suggested I try out something new a Bacardi Breezer!  I fell for it. With a alcohol percentage of 2 for India, though it gets stronger in the western world with  4.4% alcohol in Australia, 4%/5% Canada, 6.6% in the United Kingdom and 4.5% in Europe (I have always believed the Caucasians need a stronger tap on their head to understand the world around them), I felt that this fruit wine based 'alcopop' was invented by the Bacardi guys just for me.

Pronounced as BrEeZaH, it is a soft alcoholic drink consisting of Bacardi Rum and a fruit juice.  For the uninitiated the fruit juice can be anything from lemon, peach, pineapple, apple, ruby grapefruit, lime, orange, blackberry, watermelon, cranberry, coconut, raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate etc.  I accepted my friends advice but now I faced a very grave dilemma!

I was not a run of mill drinker who drinks any crap flavour as and when he gets an opportunity.  I am different,  for whatever I choose, I choose for life. You get hundreds of people who have different kind of drinks or flavours very day.  Not mee! I am a strict monogamist as far as my liquor is concerned.  

Now I faced a gargantuan task of choosing the right life partner for me.   Believe me I was spoilt for choice.  There were NiNe flavours to choose from and only one could be mine.  Again this was not a simple 1 + 1 = 2 arithmetic, it was the most complex of equations I had faced like Einstein's e=mc2. Mr.Einstein solved that one with a breeze and since I had about 0.0002 % of Mr.Einstein's brain size, I equally intended to solve mine with a breezer.

After a lot of deliberations with friends, some of which lasting 8 hours at a stretch and a visit to the friendly neighbourhood Baba Bangali for some abracadabra,  I finally arrived at my decision.  I informed my friends that I had arrived at a decision.  Naturally all were curious to find out who or rather which flavour found a place in my heart.   Playing a perfect sport to their very honourable intention, I told them I will throw a party at night to announce the arrival of my  life partner.

The day came and I opened my first bottle of Cranberry BrEeZaH and now I am a Cranberry BrEeZaH man.  The reasons which helped me were various and too many to count.  But I will include some of them here for all those curious cats.

1. It is a nice detox option. This detox has been used to cure urinary tract infections, lose weight, and break dependency on drugs(who needs drugs any ways) 
2. It is high on Vitamin C and Vitamin A
3. It contains nice mix of antioxidants
4. Forget all of above, I just like its tarty taste.

My favourite recipe for perfect evening is 
1. A big clear Glass
2. Fill it with Cranberry BrEeZaH
3. Add lots of Ice
4. Play Beethoven's 9th Symphony in D minor on the CD Player
5. Repeat the above process till I think I am Beethoven myself

Now for four years I have been a Cranberry BrEaZaH man. Being a BrEeZaH-person is often considered being lame by some people (those altruists and naysayers) who are supposed to have more than 1 brain cell.   I am happy to affirm that I am the lamest person in the universe as along as I  have my ever refreshing life partner with me all the time.
