Carling Cider

The sun is high and the neighborhood barbecues are never ending. Maybe you drank a little too much wine last night, but you still want to hang out with your best boys over beers... what now!? Yeah, I'll admit that I've been in this situation before. You know, that gnarly sensation in your upper stomach every time you even so much as hear the word "alcohol."


Recently I got gifted a little sampling package from Carling British Cider. It came with this nice glass and four bottles of their popular cherry cider. I must admit, the cherry did make me hesitate before I even opened the bottle. I'm really more of a classic apple cider kind of girl, but after a sip of this stuff on ice, I understood exactly why they sent it to me.

This is one of the only drinks I know of that is both tasty and okay to drink while hanging out with a bunch of dudes (because do you really like being that girl who orders a piña colada when everyone else is drinking beer?). Plus, it's got a cute cherry illustration at the top of the bottle that will make your lips look and way delectable. There you go, it is now a flirting tool ;)

Anyone under legal drinking age, beware! Carling cider does contain 4% alcohol. No matter how much it may taste like soda, it ain't. To learn more about the effects of alcohol, ask your parents or guardians before taking a sip.

Cheers, mate!
