Hot days call for cool drinks sipped while doing as little as possible. Most of the time, beer is my beverage of choice, satisfying that urge for something fizzy to whet my whistle. But beer can be quite filling. And sometimes, I want something just a little sweet. I know it may come as a shock to you, but beer doesn’t always do the trick.
BlogHer recently gave me the opportunity to try Michelob ULTRA Light Cider and I’m happy I gave it a chance! Light-tasting and refreshing, it’s a great alternative to my usual summer beverage. Not too strong, it has a touch of sweetness that comes naturally from crisp apples and the stevia plant–and that makes me very happy. The market is filled with alcoholic beverages overflowing with sugar, artificial sweeteners, and artificial colors. None of that here–it’s all-natural, and gluten-free to boot!
No, I’m not giving up carbs. Bite your tongue! But one of my co-workers is gluten-free, so I’ve become much more sensitive to having alternatives available now that suit all my guests’ tastes. Michelob ULTRA Light Cider fits that bill. Now nobody is left out of the party!
Michelob ULTRA Light Cider can be enjoyed straight from the bottle or poured over ice–it’s up to you. Either way, at 120 calories per serving, you’re saving 1/3 the calories over traditional hard ciders. Great for swimsuit season! (Though that may be a bit hopeless for me at this point… perhaps as a head start for next year?) Grab a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles to enjoy by the pool and you’ll be all set. Much more portable than wine or champagne!

Now that I’ve told you all about it, I have to ask: Which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Cider? I’d love to hear what you think!
