Sweet Summertime Cider

I'm not much of a drinker. Basically, I'm a 1 drink kinda gal before I start knocking glasses over and giggling like a little giddy schoolgirl at nonsensical things. But as the days get warmer and the sun lingers on into the late night hours, my taste buds crave ice cold cider ales. At first look, I thought that Michelob ULTRA Light Cider would be extremely sweet yet I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth the flavor was.

   


This cider is a gluten free beverage that offers 1/3 fewer calories (which we all know I'm especially concerned about...kidding) and a more mellowed sweetness than traditional ciders. I've crossed quite a few ciders of my list because they are rather dry and taste a lot like beer, which I don't really care for. But the Michelob ULTRA Light Cider tastes quite a bit like crisp apples and is a naturally sweetened beverage, so it doesn't leave that odd coating in your mouth afterwards where you feel like you just ate a bowl of sugar. 


This is the perfect beverage to enjoy either straight from the bottle or over a nice glass of ice on those late night evenings as the sun is slowly setting along the horizon casting long golden shadows along the skyline. Because this beverage is so light and refreshing, it is ideal for those like me who cannot handle the heavier ciders whose alcohol content is slightly higher. 



As a person who loves being outdoors as much as possible in the summer time, I think that Michelob ULTRA Light Cider will be a great addition to our cooler as we spend time basking the the summer sun lakeside.

Which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Light Cider?

  1. I usually stay away from the bigger beer brands, but you've sold me on this cider. I will have to pick some up soon because it will be refreshing after a hot run.

  2. Hmmm I don't drink beer, cider, or any of that fun stuff but I would say PIZZA goes with everything! People look so happy drinking alcoholic beverages with pizza. And burgers! Haha!

  3. I don't drink too much but I do love Strawberry Daiquiris! I want to try this drink though. It sounds good. I say that it sounds like it'd go well with (boca)burgers!

  4. I love beer and would never usually choose a big-name brand like that, but this cider sounds absolutely amazing! I too am a bit of a lightweight, so this would be perfect for me. I think this drink would go great with something off the grill, like chicken kebabs!

  7. This is so cute! When I lived in South Boston I loved kicking back and enjoying a nice summer beer on our roofdeck overlooking the city. This makes me miss those days.

    I will have to pick some up ASAP!! I enjoy a Sam Summer Ale with a good crisp salad! This sounds perfect with a fruity salad.
