Swift Raspberry Collins
Inspired by the classic Raspberry Collins cocktail, this cocktail-inspired hard cider requires a gentle stir upside-down before serving to mix up the raspberry puree. Swift Cider adds a squeeze of lemon juice, and gentle infusion of juniper berries and mint leaves for a tart, gin-botanical character. Expect a fresh muddled raspberry flavor, tart apple, lemon, hint of juniper and some cooling mint on the finish.
One Tree Strawberry Kiwi
We think One Tree Hard Cider describes their Strawberry Kiwi the best. … “Hey, home skillet! We brought back the 90’s cult classic combo strawberry kiwi. This adult “juice box” is da bomb! Pop open a bottle and before you know it you’ll be sitting at the cool table. It’s a playful mix of sweet strawberry and adventurous kiwi. Don’t stress though, we won’t make you share. I mean, ugh…AS IF!”
Founded by CEO Caitlin Braam, Head Cidermaker Tim Larsen and Creative Director Maddy Porter, Yonder Cider’s taproom is a stone’s throw from Seattle’s Green Lake and a drive from the orchards and pressing facility in Wenatchee. Inspired by popular pre-prohibition era cocktail, the Greyhound, their Sunnyslope pink grapefruit and lemon verbena cider is beautifully tart and bursting with notes of citrus, vibrant floral aromas conjure memories of warmer weather with a hue reminiscent of freshly squeezed grapefruit.
