Santa Cruz 75

Santa Cruz 75 (a delightfully crisp cocktail of champagne, elderflower syrup and lemon),

Blenheim Ginger Ale is a ginger ale bottled by Blenheim Bottlers in HamerDillon CountySouth Carolina. It was originally bottled in BlenheimMarlboro CountySouth Carolina. It was created by a local doctor in 1903 by mixing Jamaica ginger with the local mineral waters, chosen because the flavor of the mineral waters was so strong.
The spring which is the source of the water for the ginger ale was discovered by a patriot by the name of Spencer who was running from British and American Loyalist troops during the American Revolutionary War. His shoe became stuck in the mud of the natural spring; he left it and kept running. Upon his return, he picked his shoe up and noticed the amount of water in the depression his shoe left. He tasted the water and realized its strong mineral content, which now adds to the distinctive flavor of Blenheim Ginger Ale.
Blenheim is owned by the Schafer family, who also own the world-famous South of the Border roadside attraction.
It is sold in 12 ounce bottles.'
