Ciders for the Summer!

My go to cider is usually Strongbow Original Dry.  It is always crisp, dry, and refreshing! I decided to try some new ciders and hopefully find a new summer drink.

Broken Ladder
Okanagan, British Columbia
4-pack for $15.49 (cans)

This premium craft cider is made from six different kinds of BC apple varieties. It has no added flavors, colours, water, or sugar. It is also not made from concentrate. This means it classifies as a “real” apple cider. You can immediately tell it is made 100% from apples because of how flavorful and bright it tastes. While considered a dry cider it does have a bit of natural sweetness making it the perfect summer drink. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a sweeter cider and wants to try something new.

 

Savanna Dry Cider
South Africa
4-pack for $12.99 (bottles)

This premium cider is able to perfectly balance the crisp apple flavors with a dry mouth feel. It doesn’t have that overwhelming sweetness or syrupy texture that ciders with added sugar have. Try with a lemon wedge to top it all off!

“The cider equation: Apples + fermentation + micro-filtering + chill-filtering = Savanna Dry” - Savanna Cider

 

Pommies Original Cider
Ontario
4-pack for $17.49 (bottles)

Pommies Cider is made from 100% Ontario apples from the Pommie cidery in Caledon, Ontario. I found this was the lightest of all the ciders I have tried. This makes it very easy drinking and refreshing. It is also nice and bubbly without tasting overly carbonated.

While browsing the Pommies website I also discovered a great recipe to try this summer!
