Molson Canadian Cider

or other Ciders

While the bold balanced sweetness of Molson Canadian Cider contrasts the hearty and savoury gravy, the lively carbonation and acidity cuts right through it. Adding the cheese curd’s creamy flavour and texture it makes it an overall well-balanced pairing. And if you decide to include the cider in your cooking you will find it is a great way to unlock new flavours that adds a whole new layer to the recipe.
