Cherimoya are also known as custard apples so it seemed fair to partner them with actual apples. This fruited "cider" drinks like a refreshing adult smoothie on a tropical getaway. The strawberry is hefty yet elegant while the cherimoya adds a creamy deliciousness. A touch of tang kept in check by a kiss of residual sugar. You may even get a few strawberry seed surprises to add to your experience. There's nothing but good clean fun to be had with this somewhat exotic libation.
