Enjoy Fresh Fruit And Produce Year Round

Even in winter, fresh produce is plentiful for all menu needs thanks to Napa, Calif.-based The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley LLC. Restaurants, bars, and home chefs alike can easily infuse cocktails, beverages, smoothies and recipes with the sweet taste of freshness. The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley provides premium flavors with its Beverage Artistry line of blends and bases and its Culinary Traditions line of fruit purees and concentrates. The fruits are harvested at the peak of season, pureed and packed frozen to maintain the ultimate in fresh flavor and color.

"Mixologists around the country use The Perfect Purée's Culinary Traditions and Beverage Artistry lines all year long, and we find an enhanced need for fresh flavors throughout the winter months when produce is out of season," says Dana M. Bruner, corporate mixologist. "Instead of importing vegetables and fruits at a high cost, Perfect Puree is the perfect, cost effective way to continue enjoying a bounty of flavors.  We are continuously inspired by the creative use of our purees, blends and fruit bases and the resulting innovative recipes shaken and stirred at sophisticated hotels, lounges, restaurants and bars nationwide."

The ease of well-crafted cocktails is at the fingertips of professional mixologists and cocktail novices alike with a bevy of approachable recipes this winter season. At Thanksgiving dinner, entice your guests with a move beyond the usual Chardonnay and turkey pairing. Serve your family and friends a Crisp cocktail, created by Bruner with Culinary Traditions Green Apple Puree. The fresh apple flavors are the perfect pairing for items such as sage and sausage stuffing and turkey.  Or celebrate with Bruner's Cranberry Orange Delight mocktail utilizing Beverage Artistry Cranberry. As snow falls and another holiday party calls, impress friends and co-workers with the Winter Solstice, which pairs Culinary Traditions Mandarin/Tangerine Concentrate with Angostura bitters. As the nights get longer, sip on Dark as Knight with Culinary Traditions Black Currant Puree and Culinary Traditions Citrus Sensation.

Culinary Traditions line boasts 33 flavors, comprised of 22 purees, eight concentrates and three specialties. Flavors include Banana, Pink Guava, Meyer Lemon, Mango, Passion Fruit, White Peach, Red Raspberry, Caramelized Pineapple and Lychee, in addition to the flavors mentioned above. The bold flavors of the Beverage Artistry line of blends and fruit bases can be paired with spirits, wine and Champagne. The line's unique flavors of El Corazon, Yuzu Luxe Sour and Passion Colada easily elevate any cocktail. They are also delightful when used in mocktails and smoothies
