HOPPED APPLE
Our Hopped Apple style is dry hopped for all the hop goodness and none of the bitterness. The cider’s bright apple sweetness is complemented by the floral notes from the Strisselspalt hops and tropical notes from the Galaxy hops.

CRISP APPLE
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple has a bright, crisp apple flavor, just like biting into a fresh apple. It is a perfect balance of sweetness and bright acidity from culinary apples and dryness of traditional cider making apples, resulting in a complex, yet refreshing, hard cider.

CINNFUL APPLE
Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple is sweet with a slight heat. The juicy apple notes are complemented by cinnamon spice for a cider that is refreshing and smooth, yet warming. It’s the perfect choice for the colder months and holiday drinking occasions ahead.

 
TITO’S VODKA

BLOODY MARY

As hot and sassy or as savory and mild as you want it. And please don’t forget the garnishes – a bit o’ bacon? Baby corn? Pickled okra? Make your Mary just the way you like it – and let the accompanying food just try to compete!

Fill a tall glass with ice and add:

• 2 oz. Tito’s Handmade Vodka
• 4 oz. tomato juice
• Dash of Worcestershire sauce
• Dash of hot sauce
• Horseradish to taste
• Squeeze of fresh lime juice
• Fresh cracked black pepper
• Or, if you’re pressed for time, use your favorite Bloody Mary Mix

Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Serve with your favorite garnish and never apologize when your guests start sweating from Mary’s heat!
