A few weeks back I was invited to a hard cider tour and tasting at the AppleGarden Farm. This beautifully quaint farm is tucked away in Tomales (CA) and run by the sweetest couple, Jan and Louis Lee. They are the cider artisans behind the refreshingly light and crisp beverage. In the past, I have only had hard cider that was incredibly sweet and not something you could pair easily with meals. Their brew of cider could not be more opposite and I must say it was a welcomed change! It contains zero added sugars, flavorings or concentrates AND it’s gluten-free. In addition, their beverage is created 100% from fermented apple juice, solely from apples grown on their beautiful farm.
Looking for an easy, warm and vibrant drink to get your Thanksgiving dinner started on the right foot? I highly recommend this refreshingly tasty Warm Winter Vino. It’s not an overly strong drink and is subtle enough to compliment all of the wonderful Thanksgiving flavors on the table.
I always find myself trying to incorporate as many fruits and veggies as I can into my daily eating habits, I feel like you can never really get enough! The more color the better in my mind and definitely don’t let the lovely gray and purple hue of this smoothie deter you from making this wholesome and healthy recipe which contains zero dairy.
