Last week my companion and I had the privilege of attending the official Rekorderlig Cider New York Launch Dinner! Walking into the pop-up space on Delancy, we instantly felt the crisp, inviting Swedish atmosphere that gracefully captured our hearts and taste buds.
- Amuse Bouche: Seasonal Beet Soup
- Appetizer: Salad of marinated Kale, orange, spicy walnuts and fennel and served with Rekorderlig Pear
- Entree: Short ribs with lingonberry sauce, served with Rekorderlig Strawberry-Lime
- Closing with a delicious dessert: Cardamom panna cotta layered with wild berries and served with Rekorderlig Wild Berries
Though most people prefer the Rekorderlig Strawberry-Lime, our favorite flavor was Rekorderlig Pear. But honestly, they are all super delicious in their own way.
We were first introduced to Rekorderlig at the Crystal Springs beer festival this past summer. We immediately fell in love with it’s deliciously refreshing fruit taste.
Not only did we have the honor of tasting their three premiere flavors: Strawberry-Lime, Wild Berries, and Pear, but we also learned that there will be surprise flavors in the future!
Now, the best part about this entire thing: Rekorderlig will be sold at Gristedes, Morton Williams and Fairways for $4.99 as well as several bars/restaurant
Cider is an up and coming sensation, especially on the east coast. If you’re not in the mood for wine or liquor and don’t fancy a beer, cider is the perfect in-between. When we tried this cider in the summer, it was the perfect pick-me-up refreshment. It was like taking a dip in a perfectly brisk pool with the sun beaming just hot enough.
Now, how did this delectable Swedish cider come about? Rekorderlig Cider was bottled and ready to be enjoyed all over Europe, and that is exactly what happened. It has risen to the #4 cider in the U.K. and #1 in Australia! It’s about time America gets to experience some of the deliciousness of Rekorderlig.
Watch out Angry Orchard – a new, beautifully Swedish cider is coming to town.
