I’m not usually one for cocktails but there is something magical about the combination of sparkling cider and ginger beer. The ginger beer adds a sharp bite that compliments the cider’s natural tannins while the dryness of the cider helps cut through the sugary ginger beer. On this week’s edition of The Cider Press, I mix up two cider “buck” cocktails. The Young Buck, aka David Darnell Brown, is an easy drinking highball with added fancy-ness from hibiscus syrup. Then there is the Uncle Buck, aka the John Candy, is more of an “old man drink” that includes one of my favorite secret ingredient… cider molasses!
