Author Notes

Rosé is the drink of summer, cider is also the drink of summer. Ever wonder what would happen if these two spirits made a baby? Well they did and it's called Rosé Apple Cider⁠—the latest offering from the world’s leading cider producer. It tastes great over ice, but why not kick it up a notch and make it into something extra special. With a little experimenting, this is how the Rosé Spritzer was born. —Deepi Harish
