Apple flavors have become synonymous with fall, making hard cider the perfect drink of choice for this time of the year.

Angry Orchard offers a wide variety of styles that brings everything you love about the season into a bottle of refreshing hard cider. Here are two versions to try on their own or mix up some cocktails featured below.

Cinnful Apple: If you’re looking for a sweet cider with slight heat, Cinnful Apple is the drink for you. The juicy apple notes are complemented by cinnamon spice for a hard cider that is refreshing and smooth, yet warming. Cinnful Apple is the perfect choice for the colder months, bringing the cinnamon flavor of the season to life.

Crisp Apple: With a bright, crisp apple flavor, it’s just like biting into a fresh apple. This style offers the perfect balance of sweetness and bright acidity from culinary apples combined with the dryness of traditional cider-making apples, resulting in a complex, yet refreshing, hard cider – perfect for the fall season.
