Roanoke Annual Cider Cocktail Competition

The gloves are off as local restaurants and bars vie to see who can make the best cocktail using Foggy Ridge Cider brands. Joining the competition once again is Local Roots, Lucky, Fortunato and River and Rail. We have also added Blue Apron this year.
It’s simple, you the public vote by purchasing cider cocktails from any or all of the Cider Cocktail locations. At the end of Ciderweek, we see who sold the most cocktails and they are named the winner. Many of these cocktails have gone on to further fame in other competitions across the state and country. It’s a great way to see how versatile cider really is in the masterful hands of our participants. Come out and “vote” for your favorite.
