Suttons Bay Ciders' Sidra-LaPeno

Bottoms Up
By Blair Yaroch | Sept. 15, 2018

Allow us to introduce you to Sidra-LaPeno. This Spanish-style cider tastes as delicious as its name would sound rolling off the tongue of a tanned European in an olive grove. The folks at Suttons Bay Ciders know first impressions count — evident the moment your nose meets the alluring, spicy wafts of Sidra-LaPeno. The robust notes of jalapeño and habanero peppers pull you in; the strong peppery scents mellow on the taste buds, leaving just enough heat on the back of your tongue to ensure this gorgeous drink won’t soon be forgotten. Sidra-LaPeno is made from combining a slightly dry cider with a barrel-aged sour cider and infusing the blend with jalapeño and habanero peppers for up to four days. Combine this beauty with one of the most stunning views in northern Michigan, and you’ll be saying olé all day, señor. $7 per pint. Find Suttons Bay Ciders at 10530 E. Hilltop Rd., Suttons Bay.
