Black Russian is made only with 2 ingredients-vodka and coffee liquor and served over ice. It gets its black color from the coffee liquor. A variant has a splash of heavy cream and is called white Russian. Enter a new variant, drum rule please….

CAPE COD SELECT PREMIUM FROZEN CRANBERRIES are big and plump and they bring lovely color and flavor to any dish! It is a family owned and operated for over 70 years. I decided to use them to make black Russian giving it a fruity fall twist!

To prepare a cranberry syrup, bring CAPE COD SELECT PREMIUM FROZEN CRANBERRIES, water, sugar and few orange peels to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes and cool completely  (The cranberries get plumpy and look stunning in the syrup)

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
