Today’s drink is probably as close as you get to drinking a local cider in Southeast Asia. I bought a Pelican Apple Vodka. This mixer consists of vodka, apple juice and sparkling water, not really the same as a cider but it still has similarities. With its pale orange body and it’s tiny foamy head it looks pretty similar. Also the smell reminds of a (rather bad) cider, it was a sweet apple aroma that had a hint of sourness in it. Even the 5 percent alcohol content are just the same as a Strongbow you get anywhere in the UK. I have to admit that the taste makes the difference. It was very sweet and was missing the sourness that it was suggesting in the smell. You could compare it with a can of White Ace that has been spiked with a shot of nail polish. Still drinkable but you don’t really want to.
