Apple Cider Hazelnut Cocktail

How to Make Apple Cider Hazelnut Cocktail

Living in Australia during the hot, hot Summer means BBQ season. It’s such a popular time to go out with friends and family and enjoy good food and a drink or two with my favourite company. Along with delicious food, it’s pretty common to have a beer with friends and recently I’ve noticed lots of people drinking cider, and it’s something I haven’t tried before.

I’m pretty open to trying new things, so when my wife told me her favourite was Rochdale, I gave the Apple flavour a go…and it was divine.

It seems like a simple infusion really, but it’s actually mind blowing. The thirst quencher is made from a mix of fresh New Zealand crushed apples, yeast and pure glacial water – not one preservative. Glacial water is the interesting part for me because I found out that it is sourced 350m underneath the brewery from an ice age resovoir – nothing short of WOW.

Super duper inspired, I created an apple cider cocktail, with an Italian twist. So if you’re lucky enough to be able to find this cider, recreate my recipe and enjoy the flavours of Summer on your tastebuds.
