{craving} cider – the kind with booze in it

I think when you recognize that you are craving alcoholic beverages is when you are supposed to sign up for meetings. I don’t know that I am exactly at that point just yet, but I am absolutely crazy for cider these days.

I mean, it is practically juice. Actually, it IS juice, just with boozy side effects. It has much lower alcohol content than my favorite craft beers, so I can drink more than one and still not have to call people and apologize the next day. Bonus!

After I started writing this post I was looking around for cider related information and come to find out that Cider Week of Virginia starts this Friday. How awesome is that?! If that wasn’t cool enough, I also learned the Secco Wine Bar is serving Cider Flights on Sunday and a bunch of Richmond retailers are holding cider tastings.

Here is a quick list of some of my favorite ciders:

Bold Rock (local) is sure to be featured at all of the upcoming VA Cider Week events
Crispin Brut, a dry cider that drinks like Champagne, no wonder I like it
Angry Orchard Traditional Dry, their website says “a dryness that makes you pucker”
Woodchuck Farmhouse Select, is a small batch cider from Woodchuck, so exclusive, right?

  1. Yes, I tried the Bold Rock and it quickly became my favorite. Cripin is my 2nd favorite. How love that this weekend is Cider Week - you have made my day!
