Thoughts on Cider as Christmas Gift

So I was planning to gift some homebrew over Christmas, but after sampling my first cider (still Musselman’s, fermented with Nottingham for a month at 65-70 degrees F), I’ve caught the cider bug.

My question: let’s say I do this again and then bottle it in 22 ounce bombers with priming sugar. Would it be tacky to give it to people dry and put suggestions on the label about sweetening it themselves with honey, unfermented cider, etc. when they pour a chilled bottle?

Sounds like a great idea!

My friends and family are drinking through my first batch of cider at a fast pace and love it dry. My dad says just a couple of table spoons of apple juice makes it perfect. Go for it!
