What, the weather has changed and we’re just supposed to stop drinking rosé cider? Pass. We drink what we want and we encourage you to do the same, and are doing so this week with the canned cider-wine hybrid of Anyday Rosé.
Launching last spring, the brand also follows that same philosophy with its rosé, “twenty four seven, three sixty five” slapped on the 375-milliliter can to show its solidarity of rosé, any and every day. The first cider (and wine) to be sold exclusively online and using Venmo to order and purchase through the site (in addition to Apple Pay and good old fashioned credit cards), the cider is sold in packs of eight, 24, 96 and 365 — one for each day of the year.
The California-made blend is 85 percent cider and 15 percent rosé wine, dry-hopped and canned at 6.9 percent ABV. Upon popping a top and pouring into the glass, initial aromas are white wine-like, a little heady with tart cherry fruit, while cranberry and pomegranate fill out as the cider warms up. Those same red fruits flush on the front of the palate, then spread out to make room for the light, dry palate. Simple acid and a tart, light finish allow gentle bubbles to refresh with the flash of red fruit flavor.
