Why Is the Drink Called a Cape Codder?

The Cape Codder, also known as a Cape Cod cocktail, is commonly known as Vodka Cranberry cocktail.

Did you know that Cape Cod, a popular destination for vacationers to visit on the East Coast in the United States, is known for growing cranberries? The name ‘Cape Codder cocktail’ is paying tribute to this bright red fruit being produced in this region and for Cape Cod’s costal charm.

What Are the Health Benefits to Cranberry Juice?

With its sweet and sour flavour, who would have thought that cranberry juice can be good for you to consume?

There are many surprising benefits to cranberry juice. Below are just a few of them:

  • Cranberry juice can help to prevent urinary tract infections (or UTIs)
  • This juice is an excellent source of vitamin C (this vitamin helps to ward off diseases such as cancer and heart disease)
  • An 8-ounce glass of cranberry juice also contains vitamin E which helps to keep your skin, blood vessels, and heart healthy
  • Collagen found in cranberry juice can also help you absorb iron and boost your immune system
