Day 297: Ice Cider!

Yes, this is a terrible picture. Maybe due to the fact that the contents of this bottle was rapidly disappearing???

I had had the pleasure of trying ice cider a few years back and have been looking for it locally ever since. I had seen some bottles over the past few years, but none at a price point I was willing to pay for casual drinking.

Ice cider is pretty much made like ice wine, except with apples. The apples are either pressed and the juice is allowed to freeze, or the fruit is left on the trees to freeze and then harvested some time in January. The freezing increases the sugar content and flavor, akin to a dessert wine. To me, it's like drinking apple pie syrup. So delicious. And so dangerous. You can pick up this gem at Arrow Wine.
