Drinking Sidra for some is better than wine or beer...
Sidra, or hard apple cider—which in 12th century Europe was said to be more popular than wine—is increasing a demand for purchasing in restaurants, bars, and events. The drink Sidra hails primarily from the Asturias and Basque regions in northern Spain, and is made from the relatively low-sugar indigenous crabapple.
Sidra is becoming more popular because of the following:
1. It's low in sugar
2. It's lower in acid than most wine.
3. It refreshes the palate while dining.
4. It pairs up well when eating mild cheese and seafood.
At Tinto, a Basque-inspired tapas bar in Philadelphia, general manager Paul Rodriquez has long curated a dizzying Sidra list, and believes sidra is shifting from a fringe trend to a wine-and-cocktail menu staple. “People are really attracted to the uniqueness of it,” he says. “It offers that authentic food culture experience that people are craving these days.” resource: winemag.com
