Angry Orchard 

Congratulations, you’ve made it to hump day. Fortunately for you, it’s also not just your average Wednesday — today happens to be the longest day of the year welcoming the first day of summer. The summer solstice in full swing, y’all!

You’re probably at work reading this and thinking, “How could a longer day ever be in my favor?” (I get it, who wants a Wednesday to drag on?). Think of the fact that a little extra sunshine in your day is cause for celebration (and a drink or two).

We’ve partnered with Angry Orchard to give you the lowdown on not only their new drink, but the best places in NYC to find it starting today! If you were debating on whether to do happy hour after work or go home to finish binge watching OITNB, we’re telling you that a summer solstice happy hour is a must.

Angry Orchard

If you enjoy a cold cider over a beer on a warm summer night, then going for Angry Orchard’s new “Easy Apple” is a no brainer on the first day of summer. Even if you typically steer clear of cider due to its sweetness, “Easy Apple” has you covered. Easy Apple is a less sweet, unfiltered cider style, making it soft on the palate and easy to drink. Its light enough so you can have more than one without feeling weighed down, and it’s refreshing drink in this Manhattan heat.

Stop by any of these three locations (or all three if you’re up for it…) starting today to get your “Easy Apple” cider fix.
