WALDEN, N.Y., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Angry Orchard Cider Company and New York City-based Davey's Ice Cream have teamed up for National Ice Cream Day (July 15th) to give the classic ice cream scoop a hard cider twist with this year's hottest new drink, Angry Orchard Rosé hard cider1.
The frozen dessert holiday comes at the perfect time of year when the temperatures are rising and a cold pick-me-up is a necessity. Inspired by Angry Orchard Rosé cider, the team at Davey's Ice Cream worked closely with Angry Orchard Head Cider Maker Ryan Burk to develop two mouthwatering recipes meant to be savored on a hot summer day.
- Rosé CreamCider: Your Rosé cider creamsicle dreams have come true. This refreshing flavor swirls Davey's signature homemade Sweet Cream Ice Cream base with an Angry Orchard Rosé cider-infused sorbet. The result: a perfect taste combination of rich, sweet ice cream with bright, delicious apple sorbet.
- Pine-Apple Hibiscus Rosé Sorbet: A vibrant sorbet flavor that takes your taste buds on a tropical getaway. Starting with Angry Orchard Rosé cider as the base, the recipe incorporates fresh pineapple juice and hibiscus to enhance the natural fruit and floral notes in the cider. This vivid, rosy-hued sorbet is as equally refreshing as it is drool-worthy.
To kick off the National Ice Cream Day celebrations, Rosé CreamCider and Pine-Apple Hibiscus Rosé sorbet will be available at select Davey's Ice Cream locations on Friday, July 13th- Sunday, July 15th and at the Angry Orchard in Walden, New York on Sunday, July 15th, while supplies last.
"We are always looking for refreshing and unexpected ways for drinkers to enjoy cider," says Ryan Burk, head cider maker at Angry Orchard. "For National Ice Cream Day, we wanted to see if we could deliver the essence of our Rosé cider in the form of a cool treat and found a great partner in Davey's, whose passion for innovative and unique ingredients resonates in each of the recipes we've crafted together."
For over 20 years, the cider making team at Angry Orchard has been experimenting with ingredients and techniques to give drinkers new ciders that are complex and balanced. Angry Orchard is committed to creating ciders using high-quality ingredients, including Rosé, which is made with rare red flesh apples from France. Similarly, Davey's Ice Cream has been crafting distinctive, one-of-a-kind flavors since 2013 that New Yorkers can't get enough of.
"Davey's Ice Cream is dedicated to making ice cream the right way: no frills, no fuss, just churning out classic American ice cream hand-crafted by real people using real ingredients," says David Yoo, owner of Davey's Ice Cream. "As we team up with Angry Orchard this summer, we look forward to continuing age-old culinary traditions through our creative approach to making each lick of Rosé CreamCider and Pine-Apple Hibiscus Rosé sorbet a memorable experience."

About Angry Orchard Cider Company:
Angry Orchard Cider Company's cider makers have been experimenting with apple varieties and unique flavors to develop hard cider recipes for more than 20 years. The cider makers have travelled the world to find the best apples for cider making and chose specific varieties, like French bittersweet apples from Normandy and culinary apples from Italy and the United States, based on each cider's flavor profile. In November 2015, Angry Orchard established a home for cider research and development called the Cider House, located on a historic apple orchard in the New York Hudson River Valley.
Angry Orchard makes a variety of cider styles, including Angry Orchard Crisp Apple, made from traditional cider apples and tastes just like biting into a fresh apple, and Angry Orchard Rosé, made with rare red flesh apples from France. Angry Orchard is committed to drinker education and awareness-building to help grow the category for all cider makers.

They are now happily based in Greenpoint. Davey's Ice Cream is dedicated to creating innovative "classic" ice cream flavors and a welcoming environment for customers of all ages and backgrounds.
