Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

I am quickly realizing I am in for the ride of my life upon moving to Atlanta. It is HOT! You may be wondering, “Well, you are from Ecuador. How could this be different?” Let me tell you – it is a different type of heat. The sun down here BURNS. And it is not even August!

Generally I gravitate to light beers with fruit undertones, particularly in the Summer. I also enjoy rosés and some white wines. However, I recently found a new drink to add to my summer drinking repertoire. Its name is Michelob ULTRA Light Cider.

What I loved about Michelob ULTRA Light Cider is it’s crisp, refreshing taste. It has a hint of green apple flavor and a light sweetness thanks to Stevia. Initially I was concerned this drink would taste like a wine cooler, but thank goodness it doesn’t! Uh, if you like wine coolers – yay for you (…). I drank it very cold and straight out of the bottle. What a great way to unwind after a long day!

Other things you may want to know about Michelob Ultra Light Cider: it is only 120 cal./serving in light hard cider , it is gluten-free and it has a twist-off cap. The latter is very important, if you ask me.

I am looking forward to enjoying this product more and experiment with it. How about an apple cider margarita? Or maybe use it to make a cider appletini? I bet I could even use it to make a white apple cider sangria! Oh the possibilities… Atlanta summer heat, here I come!
