Stop worrying about what drinks you’ll be serving this Holiday Season because, combining apple cider with champagne makes the most mouthwatering sipper you’ve ever had. An amazing Fall twist on this classic drink makes it a great choice for Holiday parties, or just for a regular Sunday brunch.

On Wednesdays, too. Heck… if I had it my way, it’d be an everyday snack. 🥂 

MIMOSAS

Mimosas are light and refreshing which is why they are the most preferred choice for a brunch cocktail. The classic Mimosa is always prepared with Orange Juice and Champagne. However, since rules were made to be broken, I always like to add a bit of a twist:

and now, Apple Cider Mimosas

HOW TO MAKE APPLE CIDER MIMOSAS

  • For each champagne flute, we will need about 1/2 cup CHILLED apple cider and 1/4 cup CHILLED champagne, preferably Cava or Prosecco. Note that the classic ratio calls for 1 part champagne to 1 part juice.
  • If making a pitcher, I suggest to use 4 cups apple cider and 1 (750 ml) bottle of champagne. 
  • If you want to make those fancy rims on the champagne glasses; combine ground cinnamon plus granulated sugar on a shallow plate. Then, in a separate bowl or plate, pour about a 1/4 cup apple cider.
  • Dip top of glasses in apple cider, then dip in cinnamon-sugar to coat. Set aside for a minute to dry. Then, pour in the Mimosas.

WHAT KIND OF CHAMPAGNE IS BEST FOR MIMOSAS

  • You want to use a delicious dry sparkling wine. As noted above, Prosecco is the most popular option, as well as Cava, or use a good bottle of real Champagne. 

For a non-alcoholic Mimosa, use sparkling white grape juice.

HOW TO MAKE AHEAD

  • Combine the champagne and apple cider in a pitcher, and keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Whether you are making those Mimosas right on the spot, or hours ahead of time, please make sure that you serve them COLD. 

Mimosas are perfect for the Holidays and brunches, but they are also popular at birthdays, weddings, bridal showers, and more. Basically, there’s never a bad time to drink. 😆 

ENJOY!
