A Mid-Week Break

 

I don't know about you but I have a strong taste for hard cider.

Strongbow, Woodpecker and Bulmer's were the 3 ciders in almost every Malta restaurant.

i've never really tasted very much cider Ginnie... but you sure make these two glasses look quite refreshing....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Once you get started, Peter, it'll be hard to stop! smile
I do love how you've captured the light filtering through the amber liquid and the tiny bubbles!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth, but do you love hard ciders???? grin
Mmmm. I'm with you.
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Michael!

In Dutch I would say now; 'Dit is het betere werk'.
Meaning, I can go for this right now.
Great shot and great memories and great taste smile
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see how we both settled on our favorites throughout the week...Strongbow for me and Woodpecker for you. smile

I enjoy apple cider, Ginnie...especially if it is very cold.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely needs to be very cold, Ray!
The three big names in cider these days Ginnie. It has certainly become a drink to rival beer. We were allowed cider at home sometimes when I was about 12, nod I liked it because it was sweet. When I was older and tasted scrumpy cider, it was quite a shock. None of the sweet fizziness of the ciders I had known.
Ginnie Hart: The first cider I had in England was a Magner's, Chad, which we looked for at restaurants in Malta but didn't find. I actually chose Strongbow when I had the choice because it's not as sweet as the Woodpecker that Astrid chose. Still, they were all good! Tasting any cider at age 12 would have be quite the memory.

You wait until later in the year. Lisl & I will take you somewhere for some REAL CIDER. In other words locally produced "Scrumpy."
Ginnie Hart: Believe it or not, Chris, I have had a couple "scrumpy" ciders in your neck of the woods the past fes years. SOLD!
Une petite bière pour la soif.
Ginnie Hart: Hard ciders look very much like beers, Martine, don't they. I also like good beer! smile

Oh, it looks very refreshing, I would like to drink one glass of cider on these hot days we now have.
Ginnie Hart: Not the same as beer or wine, Philine, but absolutely delightful, imho (in my humble opinion).
What a beautiful image Ginnie! I love the colours.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I wouldn't mind having one right now (and it's not even 9 a.m.). smile

I had my first "thick head" and "never again" experience with cider. Even 50+ years later, I'm still wary of it wink I'm pleased to see you drinking out of glasses rather than from the can. I like the colours, too,, and the bubbles.
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure what "thick head" is, Alan, unless it falls into the "scrumpy" category. If so, no wonder you had a bad experience. Maybe your taste buds have changed since then? smile
My son's ex-girlfriend loved cider too. I tried many tastes from her but did not like it myself. I love your shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe you have to acquire a taste for it, Mary, I don't know. But I liked it at the get-go! HA! Thanks.

What a great picture! I am not much of a cider person. My daughter likes Koppaberg, when dad is buying ...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis. After Googling it, I KNOW I'd love Koppaberg. smile
Not too fussed myself, Ginnie, but your shot makes them look enticing in this hot weather.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. I will NEVER say NO to a good cider!
compo et lumière extra!! c'est bon le cidre!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Now that's a mid-week break! Looks so refreshing!
Ginnie Hart: It is and it was, Robin! smile
I like the bubbles, the light, the peops...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn. So do I. smile
He he.. even the drinks are so English. wink
Ginnie Hart: The drinks ARE English, if you talk about hard ciders, LC. You really can't escape the English influence in Malta! smile
If you like cider, Ginnie, you should visit Hereford and try the real "scrumpy" smile
Ginnie Hart: I definitely like cider, Tom, and have actually tried the "scrumpy" version somewhere near Bath, I think?! smile

Belle pause !
JP
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, JP. Something we all need from time to time.
i love the way the light is caught in those bubbles and the warm glow, Ginnie. the woodwork goes fittingly with the brews.
Ginnie Hart: It all did have a synchronistic feel to it, Ayush. smile
