Apple cider is great, but it screams Fall. Pineapple cider, on the other hand, is exactly what you'll want to crack open all Summer long, and thanks to a cider company based in Portland, OR, the alcoholic pineapple drink of your dreams exists. Reverend Nat's Hard Cider makes something called Viva La Pineapple, which is a fruity cider made with both Granny Smith apples and fresh pineapple juice, plus a hint of cinnamon. Its alcohol by volume is 6 percent, and, according to Reverend Nat's cider menu, it's his "sweetest libation."
This unique pineapple cider is inspired by another of the company's pineapple-based drinks, Tepache, which is Nat's take on the traditional Mexican beverage made by fermenting pineapples (no apples involved). Viva La Pineapple, on the other hand, has the tartness of green apples combined with the sweetness of pineapples. "Inspired by my much-renowned traditional tepache, this apple-y, pineapple-y cider is ready-to-drink and easy to drink," the cider maker says of Viva La Pineapple. The pineapple cider is growing in popularity and, based on the grocery-store sign shown above, it's the definition of irresistible. "I'm allergic to pineapples, and I continued to drink this well after the hives broke out," the sign reads. We're not exactly encouraging that, but the cider must be good.
Reverend Nat's Hard Cider is sold in some US grocery stores, and you can use the store locator to find out if you're able to find it near you.
