Best Drink of the Summer ... and Beyond: Austin Eastciders Pineapple

It's an Austin tradition to complain about the dog days of triple-digit weather, but this year we were praying for a few more days of sun. That's because this season gave us "Piney Cides." Refreshing with a pineapple kick, but without the sticky sweetness you might expect, Austin Eastciders' latest variety is the perfect drink to accompany poolside lounging, fireworks watching, or just stripping down to your skivvies after work. "Hot town, summer in the city" indeed.
