4 cocktails to help you toast this Christmas


Want to surprise your friends and family this Christmas?

We propose an original way to toast with these 4 cocktails made with our Maeloc ciders. They are natural, delicious, wonderfully refreshing, and will help with digestion after the heavy meals over Christmas.

Had you ever thought of combining cider in this way? In theory, no drink is made for mixers. The great relationships between them arise at later stages, as a result of curiosity and the need to experience new sensations. A toast must be made, and to do so, cider mixes well, and it gives a refreshing final touch to refreshing cocktails.

For years, cider was considered old-fashioned, and some bartenders gave it very little importance, disregarding it due to its strong links to rural communities. Currently, with the acknowledgement of traditional products and the modernisation of the image carried out by cider producers such as Custom Drinks, cider is once again in its place, and you can even have a Maeloc in some of the most modern bars in the Big Apple.

So, as cider is underused and there is a lack of information about it, and this leads to barmen not wanting to try it.

Both sweet cider as well as dry, each with their own nuances, play an important role when mixing ingredients, giving the final result a great personality and making very pleasant cocktails.

However, flavoured ciders (strawberry, blackberry and pear) are drinks that need no preparation, just to find their right combination so that they not only don’t lose their character but bring out the best in the other ingredients.

Here you have a few recipes that you will want to try with our Maeloc ciders.
