Hot drinks with Ambrosia apples

Need a Warm-up, Pick-me-up, or Both?

Hot beverages have a way of bringing comfort to a cold day but sometimes you like a drink with a little more kick. That’s why we rounded up a steaming collection of mulled apple cider cocktails to help you celebrate the New Year (and keep Old Man Winter at bay).

winter in Ambrosia apples orchard

Right Now in the Orchards

We’ve had a lot of snow this winter which sets a pretty scene for enjoying a hot beverage, but our farmers can’t take a snow day off (at least not every day). Ambrosia apple trees need to be pruned during these cold months – and no amount of snow can stop a grower from getting out there and giving his trees a bit of a haircut. It’s a labour of love. Want to see what pruning looks like? Check out this video.

Curling Tournament

Hurry, Hard!

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts (the Canadian women’s curling championship) is being held in Penticton, BC this year and Ambrosia apples is proud to be a sponsor. This year at the event, the Ambrosia Apples Future Stars will be announced celebrating the next generation of curlers.   Come out and see some of the world’s best curlers in Penticton from January 27th – February 4. We’ll be there handing out Ambrosia apple samples to athletes and spectators. It’s not hard to grab one, just hurry over to our booth!

If you can’t make it, we’d still love to connect with you on Twitter, Facebook,  Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube .
