Nothing says “fall” more than apple cider. Be it the perfect balance between the sweet, natural apple sugars and the acidic tang, or the opaque cloudy texture that makes for an interesting mouth feel, cider is a go-to autumn drink. The makers at Loyal 9 Cocktails (an offshoot brand of Sons of Liberty Spirits) recognize this fact and are back with one of their best sellers for the season: Apple Cider Cocktail.
Mixed with the company’s flagship vodka, the simple cocktail is pretty simple: apple cider and cinnamon mixed with Loyal 9’s gluten-free spirit. Marketing Director Bryan Ricard says that the canned libation was a seasonal product available last year, and because of its success, the company decided to bring it back to celebrate the seasons changing. The cocktail is a perfect, refreshing taste for the warmer days served cold, but can also become a comforting nightcap heated up and mulled as the months get cooler. Bryan recommends pairing the drink with a pork dish (because pork and apples are a match made in heaven) at dinner time or with an apple pie for dessert.
Loyal 9 Cocktails are sold in liquor stores all over Rhode Island.
