Finally, my Cosmo-inspired cider completed fermentation and officially kegged last night!
I have always been a fan of Carrie from “Sex and the City” and her fancy pink drinks. I give her credit for always ordering one without knocking it over. Since I know I’m not as graceful as Carrie and her Cosmos,I thought I would make a Cosmo-inspired cider. My version: “Sex and the Cider” 9% ABV is made of zesty lemon, sweet and tart cranberry juice, a dash of lime, and perfectly pink.My only suggestion is to sip it slow because it does not taste boozy to say the least. In addition to my usual cidermaking routine, I tested Amoretti Tart extract and fell in love with the results. I can’t wait to try out some of their other products.
Sex and the Cider is finally complete! Come try this 9% Cosmo inspired cider tomorrow (ONE NIGHT ONLY) @parksidechristianscafe in Farmingdale from 7-11pm. We’re raising money for Winthrop NICU, so come out and show some love! More details in my bio. 💕🍸 #thebrewbabe #theoutcask #cosmocider #hardcider #cider #cidermaker #thirstythursday #fundraiser #beerfest #charityevent #farmingdale #longisland #glutenfree
