APRICOT COCKTAILS


Full of beta-carotene and fiber, apricots are one of nature's fruit gems and they're loaded with vitаmins A and C. Apricot is derivred from the Latin word praecoquis (early-riper) aka precious, and precious they are because these tart, sweet fruits are one of the first fruits to ripen in Spring!

A FEW APRICOT FACTS
A member of the rose family, the apricot (Prunus Armenaica) originated in China and made it's way around the world from there to Armenia and the Persian Empire to the Mediterranean. Spanish explorers took apricots to the New World and planted them throughout the California missions. Today California still produces over 90% of Apricots grown in the U.S.
