Repeat after me: Summer is coming. We still have a whole season of spring before it’s officially here, but the sunniest season feels just a bit closer these days. That’s largely because those delicious summer-in-a-can beverages we love to drink are starting to hit shelves.
Prepare yourselves for the delightful Crispin Cider Co.’s Pearsecco, which comes conveniently in a picnic-ready can. Naturally, it’s Instagram gold and pretty much set to be your new warm weather drink of choice. Why? There are many bubbly reasons.
For starters, the flavor combination is unique and so on trend. According to Crispin, it’s a “marriage of a pear-based cider and a bubbly prosecco flavor.”
“The release of Crispin Rosé was our first venture into wine-inspired ciders at the forefront of the rosé trend last year,” Danielle Rappoport, director of Ciders, Mexican Imports and Flavored Malt Beverages, said in a press release. “Both prosecco and pear-inspired beverages have seen strong growth in recent years. With the new Pearsecco flavor, we are continuing to appeal to cider and wine drinkers alike with yet another rendition of our fresh and modern take on cider.”
It has prosecco flavor, yes, but make no mistake — this is a cider, not a wine. The flavor combination that results is a perfectly sippable balance of crispness and sweetness.
Why else should you move Pearsecco to the top of your must-drink list? It’s already available for you to buy! That’s right. You don’t have to wait until summer arrives to sip and savor Pearsecco for yourself. In fact, it arrived at stores on March 1.
Like the many rosé ciders that captivated us last summer, Crispin’s Pearsecco will be available in 12-ounce slim cans. The flavored cider will initially only be available as part of a larger variety pack. “We want to give new and existing drinkers the opportunity to sample them in a convenient way,” Rappoport said of the 12-pack.
The variety pack will consist of four cans of the new Pearsecco drink, along with four cans of Crispin Rosé, the company’s fan favorite beverage crafted with rose petals and hibiscus, and four cans of Crispin Brut, a crisp, extra-dry cider that tastes similar to brut champagne.
If you fall hard for the Pearsecco beverage but aren’t as big a fan of the others, don’t worry. Six-packs of the pear-flavored cider will arrive in stores starting in April.
And here’s a tip if you’re sipping Pearsecco at home: Crispin recommends serving it in a wine glass to really savor the taste.
Are you excited to sample this year’s summery drinks and try Pearsecco for yourself?
