Strawberry Cider Cocktail

Nova Scotian hard apple cider is all the rage right now and for good reason. This Strawberry Cider Cocktail takes cider to a whole new level and is a great addition to your next gathering. Fresh local strawberries muddled together with crisp Bulwark Blush Cider, Steinhart Strawberry Vodka and a spritz of lime. Light, tart and refreshing, just what you want in a summer cocktail.
