Apple Cider Mimosas
Fall is here! And it’s bringing mimosas with it!! Apple cider mimosas are incredibly easy to make and perfect for entertaining. You only need two ingredients: cider and sparkling wine, plus some cinnamon sugar to garnish the champagne flute rim. That part isn’t necessary, but it dresses it up a bit and looks pretty.
For the garnish, mix together 1/4 cup granulated white sugar with around 1/2-1 tsp of cinnamon. Mix it together well and place it on a small dish. Put a small amount of water into a bowl (just deep enough to cover the first 1/4 inch or so of the champagne flute when dipped in. Dip the glass, shake off any excess water drips, and dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Spin it around to cover evenly.
Next, we add the cider and slowly top it off with sparkling wine. The proportions are up to you. I typically do 1 part juice to 2 parts prosecco. If you prefer sweeter or less strong drinks, feel free to add more cider.
- Apple Cider
- Sparkling Wine: Champagne or Prosecco
- Garnish: 1/4 cup granulated sugar + 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
- If using the optional glass rim garnish, combine the sugar and cinnamon on a small dish. Dip glasses into a bowl containing a small amount of water (enough to cover approximately 1/4 inch of the glass rim). Dip the glass in the water and allow the excess water to drip off. Dip the glass into the cinnamon sugar and cover evenly.
- Pour your desired amount of cider into the glass, then slowly top off with sparkling wine. I usually do 1 part cider to 2 parts sparkling wine. If you prefer sweeter or less strong drinks, feel free to add more cider.
