Call it destiny. First, I love cider beer. So, when a few weeks back, a friend returned from a trip to Sweden and joined us for a night of camping with a cold Rekorderlig in her hand, I was more than happy to try the Swedish pear cider. A week later, while at the Aspen Mac and Cheese Fest, another friend turned up from the local liquor store with a Rekorderlig pear cider to sip while sampling all the cheesy goodness around us. Then, the email came through: “INVITE Rekorderlig Cider Launch Party at The Sky Hotel in Aspen.” Really? Clearly, some otherworldly force has been calling on me to drink — and write about — this (thank you, Gunner!). So, I went to the tasting and was as happy as I imagined I’d be. Three types of cider beers — pear, strawberry-lime and wild berries — served up in cocktail fashion, with suggestions for other ways to enjoy this imported cider brand (straight out of the can; as a mixer for liquor). My fave so far: the Pear Perfect, as it was the least sweet of the offerings. But don’t get me wrong…I recognize the divine intervention on my introduction to Rekorderlig and will imbibe accordingly.
