Cold Weather Cocktails Need FRESH Apple Cider

Cider BelliniThe holiday season would not be complete without apple cider, but ordinary cider certainly won’t do, especially for special celebrations.

Fowler Farms’ fresh apple cider, located at the juice counter in produce, is a premium blend of seven varieties of fresh apples and no concentrate. The flavor profile is maintained throughout the year by managing the mix of the varieties.

Fowler Farms is a Huron, New York-based family farm that spans six generations. The farm began in 1858 with 80 acres, but now it encompasses more than 2,000 acres of apple production. It is also located in the ideal climate for growing crisp, juicy apples.

The cider is delicious on its own, but during this time of year, I like to use it as an ingredient in cocktails. It’s a great way to infuse some seasonal flavor while spreading holiday cheer.
