Get set for the season of merriment with Fiver by Four Cousins, the ready-to-drink range of fun-in-a-bottle. Fiver comes in three flavours: the popular Cool (apple and lime) and Blush (strawberry and litchi), with the recently-added Dry, a bracing tang of lemon.
I received a hamper including the three flavours from Four Cousins and can’t wait to try the below recipe for the slushie. I reckon it’s going to be perfect for the hot summer afternoons!
The refreshing, wine-based Fiver is infused with delicious fruit flavours. Proud member of the Four Cousins family, this “fifth cousin” with the fitting name is as authentic, quality craft as it comes.
There’s a Fiver for everyone, whether you have a sweet tooth or prefer a drier style. Plus, this season you’ll be able to wow your friends with a super Fiver slushies!
To make a Fiver slushy:
- Empty the contents of your favourite Fiver six-pack into a pot on the stove.
- Turn up the heat to get a gentle simmer.
- Add one cup of sugar and stir. When the sugar has dissolved, take the pot off the heat to cool.
- Put the cooled Fiver mix into a glass bowl, cover with clingwrap and put into your freezer for a few hours.
- Once solidified, loosen up the slushy with a fork and serve.
- Don’t forget to add garnish – a few strawberries perhaps or zooty paper straw for extra pizzazz.
Now there’s no reason to shop around: drinks and dessert are sorted! Fiver is this season’s go-to tipple.
Dressed in eye-catching mellow yellow, gorgeous green and perfect pink, the trio look sharp wherever you go. The handy bottles are easy to keep in your fridge and ideal for party get-togethers of friends or colleagues; refreshment when you’re out and about; or, a tasty reward at the end of a long day.
Did you know that Four Cousins is not just a marketing invention? The Retief cousins – Hennie, Neil, Bussell and Phillip – joined forces in the mid 1990’s. One after the other, after completing their studies, they joined the family farm, Van Loveren, and today they’re its driving force.
Their first big endeavour was introducing the Four Cousins range of wines in 2000. Fiver was launched in 2014. Today, apart from being known as South Africa’s favourite “vino-in-a-bottle”, Four Cousins has a brand home that is a landmark at the gateway to the town of Robertson.
Fiver by Four Cousins is available at leading retailers countrywide for around R79.99/six-pack or online by the case through www.vanloveren.co.za.
