Asturias is known for its delicious hard cider, but more famous than the cider is the way it’s served — poured in the traditional way, or escanciada. The bartender holds the bottle far above his head and, looking straight ahead, pours it directly into the glass.
We saw this (and enjoyed drinking it) everywhere we went.
The food is excellent, too.
This is the seafood dinner we enjoyed by the sea.
We all tried pouring the cider the proper way, but ended up with more on the ground than in the glass, usually.
It’s amazing how well the bartenders do.
Everything we ate was fantastic.
Breakfast was a special treat.
Most of all, we enjoyed being with Lizzie and her husband again, and I have no doubt we’ll return again sometime.
