Given the name of our business, it's pretty obvious that we're big fans of beer. But there are so many other craft beverages we love outside of our usual brews! That's why this week, we're featuring a "Drink of the Week" instead of our usual "Beer of the Week." And that drink is the delightfully summer-y Bold Rock Rosé Cider.

The Bold Rock Hard Cider tagline is that it's "crushed and crafted in the Blue Ridge Mountains" from apples grown by local farmers right in North Carolina and Virginia. You can find their ciders throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, and after we tell you all about this new Rosé Cider (and all the other varieties of cider they have to offer) you're going to want to find it at a grocery store or bottle shop near you ASAP.

Read on to learn more about the Rosé Cider itself, and check out three killer cider cocktail recipes you have to try this summer.

Drink of the Week: Rosé Cider 

We love beer, it's true. But who said craft beverages had to be exclusive to breweries? We're head over heels for our drink of the week, Bold Rock Rosé Cider. This 6.0% ABV fruit-forward hard cider starts with an apple base (using apples locally grown from farmers in North Carolina and Virginia!), but it finishes with a crisp berry finish just like the wine it's inspired by. It's light, refreshing, and not too sweet—perfect for sipping by the pool, or to cool down after your next workout. Bonus: it's gluten-free and pretty much guilt-free, since it contains 1/3 fewer calories than other hard ciders on the market. Snag a six-pack today and thank us later.

3 Rosé Cider Cocktails You HAVE to Try

Bold Rock Hard Ciders are already delicious on their own, but they're also super mix-able, which makes them the perfect base for creating simple, refreshing cocktails. (Or should we say "Rock-tails" ...get it? Because Bold Rock? Okay, we'll stop.)

Obviously, Bold Rock's seasonal Rosé Cider is a fan favorite. And with 1/3 fewer calories than most hard ciders, these cocktails allow you to sip and savor without the guilt. Here are a few of our favorite quick-and-easy cocktail recipes that are as delicious as they are Instagram-worthy.

Rosé-mosa: Bold Rock Rosé Cider with a splash of orange juice.
This bold flavor combo tastes like a mix between a regular mimosa and a peach Bellini. It's the perfect way to take brunch to the next level!

Rosé Berry Spritzer: Bold Rock Rosé Cider with a splash of sparkling water and a handful of berries.
Not only is this cocktail super refreshing, but it’s easy to make and low on calories. 

The Pop Rock: An orange, mango or peach flavored popsicle topped with Bold Rock Rosé Cider. 
The popsicle slowly melts, keeping the drink consistently cool and adding a twist of citrus flavor to the fruit-forward Rosé Cider (and making it perfect to sip poolside).
