I know it’s cool to drink bone-dry ciders right now so you can show your friends it isn’t a girly drink for girls. But let’s be real here: There wouldn’t be a second type of diabetes—in epidemic proportions—in this country if sugar weren’t delicious. Enjoyment of monosaccharides is nothing to be ashamed of—it’s human. Carlton Cyderworks’ Carry Nation is sweet cider done right: an unfussy, straightforward brew, made in McMinnville, that offers a crisp bite of fresh apple in each swig. It’s a little low on carbonation and complexity, but still a well-balanced and entirely respectable way to get a fructose fix. I use it to moderate the heat of an especially mouth-searing curry—but then I’m a total girl. Recommended.
