Things I drink when reading and writing part 3: Cider and Ginger Beer

As some of you will know from previous posts, I often enjoy drinking coffee and tea when reading and writing (click here and here for those posts). But I also love lazing around with a book and some cider to relax, particularly at the end of the working week, so I thought I would share some of my favourite ciders (and also a ginger beer that I bought purely because of its name).

This is probably my favourite cider, and has been for a while now. It has a very oakey taste to it, which I love. However, this is a cider to enjoy in small amounts – I don’t think I could drink a lot of this in a single session. But it is very refreshing and tasty.

This Swedish cider is hugely popular here in Australia, and this particular one has been popular for a couple of winters now. The cinnamon and vanilla make it warm and fuzzy, even when drinking it cold, though it’s lovely warmed up too.

An Aussie cider, I just liked the name of this one. It tastes quite nice though, too. In fact, cider has had a major rebirth in Australia and now lots of cider breweries and micro-breweries are popping up everywhere – as they should because we have perfect climate for making it!

I think Ginger Beard is simply the most awesome name for a ginger beer ever! I love the picture too. This tasted amazing, so I think I might be buying this one again when I get that occasional craving for ginger beer.

What are your favourite drinks to accompany reading and writing?

  1. Those are some good looking drinks. Now that summer time has rolled around, I enjoy a cold beer on the weekends when I sit down to write or work on photos. In winter I usually have red wine, usually Chilean, or keep the fixings for a Rusty Nail on hand to warm me up in a pinch.

  2. I really enjoy all of the varieties that Recorderlig makes, and only wish a taste for cider was more wide-spread in the US, because Strongbow just. is. not. the same.

  3. I usually pick up cider over the winter, particularly around Christmas time, especially if I will be entertaining, but have not heard of the brands you mentioned. I did get a chuckle reading the ‘Cheeky Rascal’ label, as well as the ‘Ginger Beard’ one. I haven’t had a lot of ginger beer. The last time I had one was at a little Caribbean diner where a friend and I went for lunch. It was always my understanding that ginger beer was non-alcoholic, but what they served had to be more than just another soft drink. My friend and I were giggly all afternoon! lol
