Ginger & Hibiscus Cider

One of the best things about grocery shopping is of course, nibbling on free samples. XD A few weeks ago, on my almost-weekly trip out to the local Whole Foods, I happened upon a drink stand, where they were giving out cider. Five Star Foodies, as they call themselves, had two different ciders to sample that day: hibiscus and ginger.

The ginger is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it has a spicy flavor that might not be to everyone’ liking. I of course, love ginger, so this was my kind of drink! Though I think even I could only take a small portion at a time. Made from just the basic ingredients of apple, ginger and lime juice, it tastes simple and lovely.

Their hibiscus “cider with a twist” includes apples, hibiscus, water, herbs, and orange extract. It actually tasted like a mild non-alcoholic fruit punch, not too sweet.

Loved them both, but alas, I couldn’t find them again when I went back to the store the following week. (;___;)

The hibiscus cider sounds amazing. I love flower-flavored stuff, so it would be right up my alley!

Mm! Yeah, I love flowery things too, though I don’t see them around too often. I’m pretty fond of this rose ice cream that they have at one of my favorite Indian restaurants. ♥

Oh, dude. Rose ice cream sounds heavenly! A friend of mine recently sent me some gourmet chocolate, and I got to taste a jasmine truffle and a rose gardenia truffle. TO. DIE, both of them. Om nom nom!

(*_____*) That sounds divine! What a lovely friend! X)
