cider love: by J

I’ve got a big thing for cider. A good cider is crisp, clean tasting, with no overriding sweetness, and it has little else than apples and yeast in the ingredient list.

I have a couple favorites at the moment locally, Bite Hard Apple Cider out of Booneville, CA, back home I discovered Left Field Cider Co, from BC, and a bigger more easily found brand is Angry Orchard.

When looking for a cider I weed out any with added sugar, juice concentrate, or other sweetener types, I like few ingredients, and another often good sign for me is a higher alcohol percentage (between 6-9%).

In any case they’re generally affordable, drinkable, and as a bonus gluten free.

I’ve also been known use them in my sangria in replace of soda, be warned, this will be a high alcohol sangria.
