The Best Apple Cider Mimosa Recipe
You might’ve just stumbled upon your new favorite fall cocktail. The apple cider mimosa is easy-to-make, tastes delicious, and gives off autumn vibes for days. It’s perfect for those looking to try something new, or those looking to bring something interesting to the Thanksgiving Day brunch this year. With minimal effort and ingredients, you’ll be impressing everyone with this drink – including yourself.
Although fall is often dominated by pumpkin spice lattes, festive tablecloths, and goofy holiday cards ready, why not choose this year to go outside your autumnal comfort zone with an apple cider mimosa? While adding more apples to your diet around September and November is common, drinking more apple-inspired cocktails isn’t always a priority (even though it probably should be). But thankfully, apple cider mimosas make it easy.
No matter your experience level, this apple cider mimosa will absolutely rock your holiday.
Apple cider mimosas
Apple cider mimosas are super easy to make, just like regular mimosas. Apple cider + champagne = apple cider mimosa.
You could close your eyes, tilt both bottles towards a glass, hope for the best, and you’d still probably end up with a fantastic mimosa. However, if you’re looking for the real deal, look no further.
Ingredients for an apple cider mimosa:
- ½ cup apple cider of choice
- ¼ cup champagne
- 1 apple slice
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Champagne glass
Step 1: Coat the glass
To have this mimosa beat all mimosa’s, coating the rim of your glass with cinnamon sugar will take you to the next level.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar, and sprinkle it evenly onto a small plate. Next, dampen the rim of your glass in water, flip the glass upside down, and dip the rim of the glass onto the cinnamon and sugar mixture. POOF! You’ve just coasted the glass. And honey, it looks amazing.
Step 2: Make the mimosa
Easy peasy, you got this. Add ½ cup of apple cider into the champagne flute, followed by ¼ cup of champagne. We recommend buying a medium-priced bottle of champagne for taste, but if you balled out and have purchased a bunch of cheap champagne, that works too.
Once you’ve filled your glass, cut an apple slice (or however many slices you want), toss it in your drink, and there you have it: you’ve successfully made an apple cider mimosa.
How does it feel? To know your apple cider mimosas fell from heaven? Ok ok, we admit, that was a stretch. But hey, it’s exciting to try new drinks, especially around the holidays.
This holiday season might play out a little differently, but that doesn’t mean you can’t miss out on the holiday spirit. Grab your pod, make some festive mimosas. LIVE the holiday spirit, BE the holiday spirit. With this recipe, you’re already more than halfway there.
Be safe, have fun, and Happy Holidays.
