I just made a cider out of the simplest ingredients (literally your basic generic brand store apple juice, and champagne yeast) and after carbing, wouldn't you know it, my wife loves the stuff! My wife dislikes all beer and most other alcohol...exceptions for semi-sweet German white wine and some sweet drinks like Amaretto Sours. But she loves this cider!
I'm going to try something like this, but I think I may just do the non-fermented route...some vodka or grain alcohol in a premixed batch. Easier and with a higher likelihood that she would like it.
