Product DescriptionReady to toast the season, this lovely woman carries a bottle of cider and a pitcher to sell and serve it. At autumn and winter holidays, festive American tables included all manner of drink, from fine wines to homemade cider. In Europe, where polluted waterways were a bigger problem, people substituted alcohol. It was an easy example for the colonists to follow. The first beverages of choice were cider and beer. Both were simple to make. For cider, the raw material, apples, was readily available. Apples gained longevity when pressed into cider or cooked into applesauce or apple butter. John Adams was known to begin his days with a draft of hard cider.
