Sunday’s weather was the closest thing to ‘summery’ we’ve had since last September. Along with some overdue gardening, we enjoyed some refreshing summer beverages in the sun; specifically, we had a few pear ciders on ice.
The ice wasn’t really necessary but as it melted the peary of the moment, a Weston’s Wyld Wood, diluted and became a bit less viscous. There was a good pear flavour but an almost cloying sweetness and density more suited to cooking than quaffing. I also like mine a bit less yellow…Jackie thinks I was being a bit picky, but we did finish the batch.
