Every region of the country has a unique tailgating traditions and we certainly enjoy exploring all the different areas as well as the different cocktail ideas.

And as you know… football season is in full swing, which means fans everywhere are packing their coolers and heading to festive tailgates and watch parties. While beer is very popular at these events, many drinkers are searching for lighter, more refreshing, and apple-forward alternatives. This year, be sure to stock up on Angry Orchard* hard cider, the No. 1 selling hard cider in the country and the ideal tailgating beverage. Flagship style Crisp Apple provides a fruit-forward flavor, like biting into a fresh apple, perfect to enjoy while cheering on your team and ‘cheers’-ing with friends.

Looking for crowd-pleasing cocktails? Serve up the Southern Orchard, an easy to make cocktail blending the crisp taste of hard cider with the warm flavors of Bourbon and honey.
