Warm weather or not, there’s no reason you can’t start planning a Spring house party, indoors or out, you just need to find an excuse. Earth Day is April 22nd, so that’s good enough for us! To get you started we’ve got a couple super simple cocktails using one of favorite cider brands, Angry Orchard. 4 Ingredients is all you’ll need to make either of these, and I promise you, unless you hate cider, you won’t be disappointed.
