When Ryan Burk was growing up in Walden, New York, apple orchards were his playground. He never once thought that they would one day become his office, too. Burk is the head cider maker at Angry Orchard. He oversees the process of taking apples and turning them into the hard cider that people across the country enjoy. It’s his dream job.
Time to spice things up and try something different this Holiday Season with a new Angry Orchard recipe. You won’t regret it! ...Orchard Toddy: 1 bottle Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple… So put away that family hot toddy recipe (at least once! we promise your Aunt will be okay with it!) and try something new.
After a long workweek, there is no better way to relax and unwind than with your favorite cocktail in hand. Here’s are five great ways to get your drink on this weekend… There is nothing quite like the taste of apple to kick off the fall right. Over the summer, Angry Orchard introduced a year-round specialty hard cider - Walden Hollow - that we are loving this fall. The cider is made with local apples and heirloom varieties, including Golden Russet, Newtown Pippin and Northern Spy from New York state.
Recently, while sitting outside enjoying an Angry Orchard Hard Cider, my belly growling, I had the genius idea to recreate a beer bread recipe I tried last year. There’s nothing quite like the warm smell of spiced baked goods to get me in the fall spirit. I didn’t have any beer on hand, however I did have the Angry Orchard Fall Variety Pack, which includes: Crisp Apple, Easy Apple, Green Apple, Stone Dry, Hop’n Mad Apple, and Cinnful Apple. I used the latter – a hard cider with a hint of cinnamon spice – in place of beer for the recipe.
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.
The Cooking Light team tackled the task of trying a wide variety of ciders to determine our top picks for our fall sipping needs. Whether sweet, dry, infused with another flavor, or just a classic apple taste, we found nearly a dozen ciders that deserve a spot at your next bonfire or fall festival… Angry Orchard Walden Hollow: "Bubbles! Tasty, crisp, dry." "Classic, easy to sip. The bubbles are refreshing." “Really fun and fall-flavored."
The thing is, apple picking involves finding an apple orchard, going to the orchard, then actually walking around and picking the apples. It’s a lot of work and great for Instagram selfies, sure, but at the end of the day, do you really want to spend all that time to get a few apples? We have a better idea, one that’ll save you the time and effort of apple picking, but still deliver one hundred percent of the apple flavors: mix up these apple-based cocktails and use those hours in more meaningful ways than trying to decide if that Granny Smith is ready for picking or not.
Angry Orchard Hard Cider, Walden, New York: One of the world's biggest cider producers recently opened a Hudson Valley orchard and interactive visitors center. Guests can visit a treehouse tasting room, take a self-guided farm tour and sip small-batch ciders. "You may taste something that never goes into full production. It's almost like a cider studio," Book says. His favorite: The Old-Fashioned, a drink inspired by the cocktail that's available nationally.
