In spring 2018, a burst of new rosé ciders came onto the scene. Many are delicious, some are almost too easy to drink and others are expensive but worth the price. Now, just in time for the hottest days of summer, one of Supercall’s favorite rosé ciders is coming in ice cream form. Angry Orchard Cider and New York City’s Davey’s Ice Cream are getting together for National Ice Cream Day (which is July 15, for those who aren’t up to date on their made up holidays) to make hard rosé cider ice cream.
Angry Orchard and Davey’s created two new flavors for the occasion. The first is Rosé CreamCider, a creamsicle-like mix of ice cream and cider-infused sorbet. The second is Pine-Apple Hibiscus Rosé Sorbet, which is a tropical ice cream made with cider, fresh pineapple juice and hibiscus that plays off the fruitiness of Angry Orchard.
“We are always looking for refreshing and unexpected ways for drinkers to enjoy cider,” Ryan Burk, the head cider maker at Angry Orchard, said in a press release. “For National Ice Cream Day, we wanted to see if we could deliver the essence of our Rosé cider in the form of a cool treat and found a great partner in Davey’s, whose passion for innovation and unique ingredients resonates in each of the recipes we’ve crafted together.”
The collab is very on trend. Other than rosé ciders, the breakout boozy treats of the season are frozen. Think classics like the frozen Negroni (“Fregronis”), an endless number of Frosés and a blue whiskey frozen drink called Frisky. Not to mention all of the boozy ice cream brands out there, plus the 15 percent abv push-pops and eight percent abv Slim Chillers.
You can find the Angry Orchard ice cream at Davey’s Ice Cream shops in New York City and at the Angry Orchard cidery in Walden, New York starting on Sunday, July 15.
