Happy Thanksgiving, #ciderlovers! We hope that you spent the holiday enjoying delicious food and creating great new memories with family and friends.
The arrival of Friday means a new version of The Double Tap List, our roundup of the most notable and like-worthy cider content on Instagram. The #ciderworld has been full of activity this week with Cider Week recaps, flavors of the month and fun facts. Check out some of our favorites from November 18–24:
I wish I had this last night while serving cider with my Thanksgiving dinner… This turkey bottle costume is fantastic! The amount of time spent making this costume was absolutely worth it because it is hilarious. Thank you, Evenfall, for this great photo. Be sure to check out Evenfall’s Instagram page to find our where you can sip on Unity and some of their other amazing cider selections.
Wine really isn’t the only thing you can serve with your holiday dinner. For those who weren’t quite sure which ciders to pair with their dinner, a local wine and spirits store in Fishkill, New York provided customers with the opportunity to sample some selections from Tilted Shed, Nine Pin, Eden Specialty Cider and Naked Flock—try before you buy! What a great idea, Boutique Wines, Spirits & Ciders!
Cranberry hard cider is a fantastic beverage pairing for your Thanksgiving-leftovers sandwich. Need suggestions? Try 12 Corners Vineyard‘s Lil Red Cranberry Apple Hard Cider, made with Michigan apples and deliciously tart cranberries. Get to work layering buttery Thanksgiving turkey, garlicky mashed potatoes, zesty cranberry sauce and savory gravy between two pieces of hearty white bread for one of the best lunches of the year!
