Fall is the perfect time of year for apple picking and hard cider sipping! Strongbow Hard Cider comes in a variety of flavors such as Golden Apple, Honey, Ginger, and Cherry Blossom. Not only are all the flavors delicious on their own, but they mix great into cocktails too. Since it’s sort of a snacking season, I tried pairing these sweeter cider cocktails with Neal Brother’s Kettle Chips. Below are some great cider cocktails to inspire you this fall with delicious Neal Brother’s chip pairings.
