I live in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains. I find a lot of inspiration in them. Every time I look up, they are different. One of my favorite times is when it rains and the mountains become misty and cloud covered. You see hills and peaks sticking out like islands.
Misty mountain hard cider was inspired by these vistas. I used Early Gold apples but you could also use Granny Smiths. The tart dessert base is an excellent foundation for the black raspberries, which add some fruity aroma and give the hard cider a purplish hue: just like the colors I find sometimes in the misty mountains above my home.
