Tonight I finally had a night to sit at home and relax.
As a treat, I opened the hard apple cider my sister gave me for Mother's Day. It was delicious.
Yes, hard apple cider has a certain amount of alcohol in it. But not a high amount.
I have never been a fan of beer. And there are a few drinks with alcohol I do enjoy from time to time... and hard apple cider happens to be one of my favorites.
I discovered hard apple cider when we still lived in Meridian, Idaho. We had gone to have dinner in downtown Boise, and ate at a Basque restaurant. They had a hard cider on their menu, and I decided to try it. It was delicious.
So, from time to time, I would try different kinds of cider. Some are better than others. For a while, they weren't really popular, but have gotten more popular recently.
I have never liked beer, and never been a beer drinker. But a hard apple cider is delicious.
Two years ago my brother and I drove up to Canada and stopped at a pub for lunch. I ordered a hard apple cider. It was so delicious. It was Okanagan. But last summer when I returned to Canada with both of my siblings, I sought out this particular brand of cider, and couldn't find it. I am still searching for that delicious cider I tried.
I am constantly in search of good apple cider. It isn't because I like to drink to excess. It is because I enjoy the taste and flavor of hard apple cider. And I have tried other hard ciders made of other fruit as well, and many are quite good.
I will continue to search out different ciders to try. And I will continue to enjoy them along the way.
