This sparkly cocktail is fun & simple to make, we’ll show you how in this step by step video!
Here's a couple tips from Team snow:
🍎 Test the rim mixture before you prep the glass to make sure the spice + sugar is just right for you and will adhere nicely to the glass. We like to use lemon juice to wet the rim.
🍎 For fancy ice, add cranberries with water to ice cube trays a few hours before. We like the silicon trays for easy removal and larger cubes won't dilute the cocktail as quickly.
🍎Post your drink and tag us @snowcappedcider, we'd love to see your creation! Cheers!...
🌟The Gilded Spice Cocktail is as good as it looks! The Gold Rush cider is perfectly complemented by the cranberries & oranges. The spiced rim with sugar adds the shimmer to make this cocktail a little bit special 😍

In 2012, we began the process of creating our award-winning Snowcapped Ciders. We started with exceptional fruit from our family orchards. We combined our knowledge and experience with our love of great tasting food and beverages to create our signature series of hard ciders. ❤🧀🍻
🍎Our fabulous fruit, including cider varietal apples, is grown in Colorado following thus eliminating the need for added artificial sugars to achieve a clean, fresh taste. 🍑🍐🍒
🌳Our family orchards are located at the bottom of Grand Mesa in the beautiful Surface Creek Valley of Colorado’s Western Slope #coloradoproud. 🌄
At an elevation of 6130 feet, we are one of the highest elevation orchards in the world! The high elevation, warm days, and cool nights capture the crisp taste of Colorado, producing a clean and balanced cider....
“How 'bout those apples.” 🍎🍎🍎
This is one of the world's most favorite gloating phrases (the OG brag came way before the mic drop.)🎤😎
Well, we want to tell you about these apples FOR REAL! And keep following for factoids about all the varieties we grow for Snow Capped Cider. Buckle up, apple and cider nerds 🍎🍻🤓🙌
This particular bin is full of culinary apples, ready to be packed. Our family has been supplying grocers with apples since the early 1900’s! 🛒🍎
While these beauties look good enough to eat, many cider apples are ugly. We are so blessed to be the grower behind our cider passion! 👩🌾🍻🔥...
🥂 Tasting Tuesday
Today we're diving deeper into the complexities of our Gold Rush cider.
● Inspiration: Colorado Gold Rush
● Varietals: Blanc Mollet, Ashmead’s Kernal, Golden Russet & Dabinett cider apples
● Fun Fact: Gold Rush is a finalist in the 2021 Good Food Awards, woohoo! 🎉
From the Maker:
These coveted cider apples deliver with brilliant golden hue, tantalizing ripe fruit character, clean quintessential medium tannins only produced from English and French varietal. Cider apples like these are rare in the world, like gold!
Five generations of the Williams family have been integrally involved in the fruit growing, packing & shipping process. In 2014, Snow Capped Cider was born of genuine curiosity, grew into a passion and burst forth as an award winning cider company. We are grateful to share our obsession with cider and hope to keep it going for another 100 years....
We packed and marketed the fruit grown on the first 40-acre parcel purchased also known as “The North 40”.
That packing shed, which is still in use today, stands with much of the original equipment in place near the original farm house which is still surrounded by orchards.
This was before the age of Amazon, grocery delivery, and packing and shipping fruit was time-intensive and challenging. Fruit was hauled from many orchard sites in flatbed semi-trucks to packing sheds. Wooden apple boxes were hand-made on site using tomahawks. The fruit was cleaned, individually wrapped in paper, and carefully packed in the hand-made wooden boxes. Each box was loaded onto a rail car, sent from Grand Junction, Colorado with huge blocks of ice for distribution....
