Normally we present you with a cocktail recipe each Friday to celebrate the weekend. However, in honor of Cider Week (last weekend!), this week we present you with a little bit of info on Gigi’s favorite cider, Annadale Atomic Hard Cider from Montgomery Farms. This semi-dry cider is served at Gigi Market by the jar or on draft at Gigi Trattoria. It has 7% alcohol and is unfiltered and unsulfited.
At Montgomery Farms, they use about 60 varieties of antique and commercial apples for Annadale Cider. All these apples are grown on the land that Jane Livingston Montgomery, the original owner, cultivated apples on over 200 years ago. Annadale Atomic cider uses about 6 different varieties and is their signature cider. Unfortunately it is sold out for the season. Luckily Gigi Trattoria snagged one of the last kegs so you have to stop by to try it!
We are such fans of Montgomery Farms and their Atomic Cider that we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to share it with all of you! But we don’t want to leave you stranded this weekend without a great recipe. So you will find our TGIF recipe below:
