We've created the ultimate Swilled Pack to usher in summer!

The theme of this box is tropical. All of the ciders inside are low in sugar content to keep them as light and  refreshing as possible for summer days. Enjoy them poolside. Crack open a bottle while sitting around the firepit. Or, share a bottle at your next cookout. However you decide to enjoy them, we hope you'll take pictures of your adventures and food pairings and share them with us using the hashtag #swilledpack and #bestservedwithadventure.

THE CIDERS

MARGARITA
Flavors of lime and tart apples are a fun twist on this classic cocktail. Tequila is not required, but we won't blame you if you put it in a margarita glass and salt the rim.
 
Suggested pairing: Mexican flavors are a classic pairing! Shrimp tacos, fajitas or a side of chips and salsa will offer some heat and the lime flavors of the cider will compliment the spice perfectly. 
PRICKLY PEAR
A fusion of apples and prickly pear cactus fruit, this cider has a complex blend of earthy, floral and fruit notes. Hints of strawberry and melon give it a unique sweetness before the tart and semi-dry finish reminiscent of a rosé or blush wine.
 
Suggested pairing: Charcuterie boards are perfect for summer entertaining. The fruit flavors in this cider pair perfectly with mild cheeses, brie and goat cheese. Mix in some fresh fruit, Prosciutto and salame, honey and jam, mixed nuts and crackers for a snack that can easily be substituted for lunch or dinner.
MANGO PASSION FRUIT
A few of our favorite seasonal flavors were combined to create this tropical cider. Notes of mango, passion fruit and citrus give this cider a refreshing and full flavor profile that is slightly sweet and tart all at once.
 

Suggested Pairing: Take this mango pasta salad by @harryanddavid to your next BBQ. We omitted the peanuts and added a little more jalapeno for a kick. The sweet and spicy flavors play well with the sweet and tart flavors in the mango passion fruit cider. Your friends will love you for bringing a delicious bottle of cider along with the perfect side dish.
