Blake’s Hard Cider (BHC) announced the release of its first-ever Bar Cart Series, a line of hard ciders inspired by favorite cocktails. Drinkable on its own or with the addition of liquor, Paloma is the first of three in the new line. It will be available across BHC’s 20-plus state footprint with the two others to follow later in the year. Paloma, a nod to the traditional cocktail made with grapefruit juice, lime and tequila, is a semi-sweet hard cider that delivers the balance of citrus and sweetness from agave flavors over an apple cider base, the company says. With an ABV range of 6.5-8%, the Bar Cart Series will be sold in six-packs of 12-ounce cans with a suggested retail price range of $10.99-$12.99.
