If you could only have one type of berry for the rest of your life, which would it be? Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries… do you really have to pick just one? Of course not! That would be silly and downright cruel.
Berries are like natures healthy candy. They’re sweet and decadent but also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which makes them pretty guilt-free. We’d never want to imagine a world without berry filled treats! Sweet and juicy berries can bring any dessert or beverage to life. Maybe it’s time you add a little taste of summer to your next happy hour. Strawberry raspberry cider creates a perfect fusion of two of the most favored berries that will have you sipping on summer time all year long. To make this cider, you’ll need strawberries, raspberries, sugar, and premiere rouge yeast.
Visit your local farmers market or supermarket to pick up some fresh berries. To ensure amazing flavor for your cider, be sure to find sweet, plump, and fragrant fruit. Next, you’ll freeze the berries since the ice crystals will break down their structure and release their flavor and aroma.
