    Fire Cider in the Kitchen: It's Fry Day - Fry-Yay!

    Fire Cider in the Kitchen: It's Fry Day - Fry-Yay!

    French fries are kind of a big thing here at Fire Cider HQ, we've talked about this before

    French fries drizzled with Fire Cider!

    When we found out that today was National French Fry Day we couldn't pass up the opportunity to nosh on some delicious fried taters, with a Fire Cider twist. This year we not only drizzled the fries with our tongue-tingling tonic, but we upped the game with our condiments, and created a Fire Cider Mayonnaise and a Vegan Fire Cider Mayo (recipes below).

    However you choose to celebrate this crispy, salty, potato-centric day, we hope you'll try a few bites with the extra zing of Fire Cider. Make your tummy and your taste-buds happy.

    Fire Cider Mayonnaise and Vegan Fire Cider Mayo make great alternate sauces for your favorite french fries!

    Fire Cider on the Road - From Eh, to Bean

    We've been traveling fools lately, with team members flying all over the US, and beyond, to sing the praises of our tangy, spicy, sweet tonic. May involved some of our first international travel!

    Team Fire Cider at the Sial Canada Show in May 2017

    Sial Canada

    At the beginning of May Caitlin and Heather hopped a plane to head up to Toronto for the Sial Canada Show. Unfortunately they ran into some crazy cancellations, redirects, and delays and didn't arrive until just before the show started, but they hit the ground running! This was an amazing opportunity for us sample Fire Cider, meet with and make connections with future retailers and distributors, and learn more about the Canadian market. Thankfully they had a few chances to get out into the city proper and tell us that the food and craft beers were on point! Caitlin is Vegan and found an amazing variety while there!

    This month we're headed off to a pile of events in New York City and our favorite music festival, so check back for our June wrap up! Keep up with us on Facebook or Instagram to find out where you can find us!
