Come to­gether for the per­fect fall feast

Food & Drink - - YOUR TURN TO HOST -

Au­tumn: the trees are heavy with

fruit, and the fields are full; it’s

har­vest time. For over 125 years, Strong­bow has cel­e­brated the har­vest as its farm­ers cover 10,000 acres of or­chards, and pick over one bil­lion ap­ples an­nu­ally.

Har­vest means har­vest feasts. Whether an in­ti­mate gath­er­ing

around a crack­ling fire or a full-blown

Thanks­giv­ing feast, the at­mos­phere is set in the cock­tail hour be­fore

plates are filled. Light and re­fresh­ing, cider’s bal­anced ap­ple crisp­ness is

the per­fect ad­di­tion to a clas­sic Old

Fash­ioned; the per­fect ice­breaker

served over ice.

The ver­sa­tile bev­er­age, cider can be en­joyed on its own, to help cre­ate the per­fect cock­tail, or complement

a har­vest meal. Strong­bow is gluten­free, and with the juice of a medi­um­sized ap­ple in ev­ery can, you’ll be guilt-free at your har­vest feast, while

on your way back for sec­onds.

A Strong­bow twist to an old favourite

The clas­sic meets the orig­i­nal.

Noth­ing whets a har­vest feast ap­petite like a good cock­tail.

Fresh and sim­ple; try this ap­ple

and lemon twist on the clas­sic Old Fash­ioned. Choose ei­ther the spice of Rye or sweet­ness of Bour­bon to pair per­fectly with the bal­anced Strong­bow Orig­i­nal Dry. STRONG­BOW ORIG­I­NAL OLD FASH­IONED
