Apple Sidra

Apple Sidra

When I was in Germany a couple of years back I found one of the most delicious drinks I've ever experienced. It was an apple soda called Apfelsaftschorle. It is absolutely perfect. It's mineral water and apple juice. I don't know why it's so much better than any other sparkling apple drink I've ever had, but I have been searching for it's equal ever since I've been back in the States. A couple of weeks ago I found this in my trusty Asian market. As always my hopes were high that I had found a comparable drink that I could find at home. Nope. It's kind of gross. It's really harsh, and even though it has apple concentrate in it, it tastes like apple candies. How to companies mess that up? They are using juice. Why can't they just let it be? They always have to add a butt load of sugar and ruin it all. Apple Sidra deemed it necessary to use both fructose and sugar. Grosstown, USA.

I should probably abandon my search and just try to make the wonderful German drink on my own. I know it will never be the same, but I need it to survive. Maybe not survive, but to have content taste buds. They apparently run my life these days.
