One of the more interesting aspects of the rise in cider popularity in the US, is the rise of cider inspired cocktails. I’m solidly a beer guy, but that said, it doesn’t take much to get me off course. This, as my friends will attest to, is not surprising.
While I like my standbys, I’m always looking for something different and something new. Speaking of which, Angry Orchard’s seasonal offering, Elderflower, is on shelves now. If you are a fan of mojitos, as well as AO Elderflower, you are going to love this. For me, it’s something new and something good. I’m in.
Angry ElderBerry Mojito
1 oz white rum
4 slices strawberry
4 mint leaves
1/2 bottle of Elderflower Cider
Muddle the berries and mint in a pint glass.
Fill a pint glass with ice.
Add in the rum.
Add in the cider.
With another glass, give it a solid shake.
Garnish with strawberry.
Note: Angry Orchard provided me with a few bottles of Elderflower AND the mixology to make the Mojito. The opinions and now empty glass are my own.
