Stella Artois is inspiring people to make their holiday parties more memorable by incorporating personalized touches into every gathering.

Mix up this apple pie-inspired cocktail with Stella Artois Cidre, a perfectly-balanced European-style cider that’s not too sweet and not too dry. It’s the perfect pairing to accompany a Thanksgiving meal or to swap for the classic dessert with a twist.
