When Drinking Cider Do As The Romans Do


When the Romans arrived in England in 55 BC, they apparently discovered Kentish villagers drinking a boozy¬†beverage made from apples. The records show that these Romans and their leader, Julius Caesar, embraced the activity with enthusiasm. More recently it was established that pouring cider over ice makes the drink much more refreshing. Well here’s another twist that’s worth a try. If you like your cider to taste of fresh apples – just add a handful of diced apple to your glass. It really makes a welcome difference to the plain old brew.
