These Easy Cozy Apple Cider Mimosas are perfect for all your fall celebrations. This is the season for soul-warming food and drink, what better way to celebrate the season than with apple cider with a kick!
A mimosa is a classic cocktail that will never go out of style. A sparkling wine and your favorite juice (usually orange) come together to create flavors and feelings that really set a mood.
Apple Cider Mimosas for the Fall Win!
Happy Wine Wednesday!!
My family and friends that know me well, know how I love mimosas!! I remember mixing apple juice and sprite as a little girl because it made me feel fancy!
I love to remix drinks, and though I love the classic mimosa which is champagne and orange juice, I love recreating recipes. Mixing new flavors, textures, and ingredients is one of my favorite things about recipe creation.
I love apple cider in general. It has the ability to create that tingly feeling when you drink it. Especially when Autumn rolls around and there is a nip of coolness in the air.
Your body just starts to crave the cider and warmness it creates. Adding apple cider to make a mimosa is the perfect fall twist on a classic cocktail.
Celebrations and Variations
It is the perfect time to share this post with Thanksgiving coming up and after that Christmas. To top that off, National Apple Cider day is right around the corner!! This drink is perfect for any and all Fall through Winter celebrations.
Get fancy by adding your favorite flavors to the rim of the glass. My recipe calls for cinnamon sugar or gold sprinkles with caramel syrup. But, you can add some nutmeg or pumpkin spice to the mix and dip the rims of the glasses.
For added flavor, you can add some brandy or rum with the apple cider and wine. Use your favorite champagne/wine flavors or splurge and try something new!
If you want to serve a non-alcoholic version, opt out of the brandy or rum, and use an alcohol-free sparkling wine.
Cheers to an amazing holiday season!
Sip and Enjoy!
Tips and Tricks
Before mixing, make sure the apple cider and champagne are both completely cold. A refreshing and bubbly drink is created by combining cold components.
Enhance the presentation by adding apple slices or artificial gold dust on top of your mimosas.
For a fascinating variation on the glass rim, try crushed ginger snaps or nutmeg.
Make ice cubes out of apple cider and use them to chill the mimosas without diluting their flavour.
Drop a few pomegranate seeds or cranberries into the drink for visual appeal as well as a burst of seasonal flavours.
To make a lighter version, replace the champagne with sparkling water, focusing on the apple cider and spices.
In the interest of a cosy fall brunch, have the mimosas with a buffet of freshly baked apple cinnamon scones, quiches and seasonal fruits.
To enjoy a peaceful evening indoors, pair the mimosas with a dish of different cheeses, crackers, and spiced nuts.
For a beautiful outdoor picnic, pack the mimosas in thermos flasks with gourmet sandwiches, and fresh apple slices.
Serve with warm cider doughnuts, caramel-dipped apples, and fresh air.
