Although I would never consider cider as a drink of choice in the past, it's become another option when I'm out and not feeling the liquor or wine. It's often tastier, lighter and more available than GF beers, too. I much prefer dry ciders, which can also be harder to find, and sometimes as pricey (or pricier) than a nice bottle of wine. Ciders may come in all different varieties: apple, pear, pomegranate, blood orange, etc. Careful though - due to the sugars, these can be high in calorie content, approximately 200 calories per serving.
