This fall enjoy a delicious apple cider and champagne cocktail that’s great with brunch or an evening cocktail party.
The older I get the pickier I get. I think it’s because I know what I like when it comes to food and drinks and I don’t want to waste time with inferior products.
When it comes to cocktails and drinks my drink of choice is champagne or sparkling wine. I like that it isn’t too sweet, that it isn’t loaded with calories, and that it pairs well with many different foods.
So whenever I make cocktails I generally make them with wine or sparkling wine. This Apple Cider Mimosa is no exception. With sweetness from the apple cider and the delicate bubbles from the sparkling wine this cocktail is delicious anytime of day.
- apple cider
- dry sparkling wine
- cinnamon sticks
To Make the Mimosa: Divide the apple cider between 4 glasses. Top each one with sparkling wine. Garnish with a slice of apple and a cinnamon stick.
Apple Cider is one of those things that most people drink in the fall. You can enjoy it hot or cold. In this case you’ll want it cold.
While mimosas and typically served at brunch, these apple cider mimosas are great for a fall cocktail hour or just for a holiday gathering. With just a few ingredients it’s easy to whip them up any time someone stops by.
What type of sparkling wine should I use?
I like dry wines so I recommend a Brut with these mimosas since the apple cider adds a lot of sweetness. You can use Proscesso if you prefer a sweeter wine.
Can I make these non-alcoholic?
Substitute sparkling white grape juice or sparkling apple juice if you want to make these non-alcoholic.
Can I use apple juice?
While you could use apple juice using apple cider gives them more flavor. Cider is made from an apple mash that is pressed into a juice without the use of heat. The apple is much more concentrated and adds an authentic fall flavor.
How can I make these more festive?
Garnishing with sugared cranberries or whole star anise would make them perfect for serving at the holidays.
This recipe is so easy to make. It’s basically just two ingredients combined in a glass with a few garnishes to make it look pretty.
I enjoyed the flavor of these mimosas. They were sweet but not overly so. The flavors of the apple cider paired well with the bubbles. While this would be a lovely brunch drink don’t overlook it when serving dessert.
