*Tepache – Pineapple Cider
Tepache is a traditional Mexican beverage made from pineapples.
I call it Pineapple Cider. Please note – the Tepache that Reverend Nat makes, contains NO apples, so technically it is not a cider at all. Regardless of what you call it, I love it!
I first had Reverend Nat’s Tepache two weeks ago at the Portland Spring Cider Festival at the Tiffany center. not too sweet with lots of pineapple flavor!
Quoting from Reverend Nat’s website –
Tepache is a traditional Mexican drink, frequently consumed out of a plastic baggie with a straw, sold by street vendors in Jalisco and made at home. We make our ¡Tepache! with fresh Costa Rican pineapples, pure Michoacan piloncillo (raw unrefined sugar) and a blend of three spices – No Apples! The fermentation happens on the scales and rind of the pineapples, imparting a deep and unique flavor. This beverage is low-alcohol and sweet like a Summer Shandy or Radler due to a partial fermentation of the pineapples. We serve it with one-third beer in a tall 20 ounce glass.
I am really looking forward to this party!
