It’s a perfect fall cocktail!

The tastes of fall are some of my favorites.  Cinnamon and brown sugar, cider, a little bubbly.  It’s all delish.  There’s nothing quite like the taste of crisp apples this time of year.  There isn’t anything like pairing it with bubbly.  This easy apple cider cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate autumn and the holidays this fall.  Thanksgiving is a fabulous time to share this treat, but I have to say – I’ll be mixing up a batch for Halloween as well! 

How do I make an apple cider mimosa?

  • Garnish with an apple slice

What type of apples do you use for garnishing an apple cider mimosa?

My go-to apple is the Honeycrisp.  Honeycrisp apples simply don’t brown nearly as quickly as other varieties! The best part is that you don’t need to rub any citrus on them (which can change the taste), or wrap them tightly.  They simply don’t brown. You can learn more about this delicious variety of apple here.

Can you use Prosecco instead of champagne for mimosas?

The answer is yes.  I do it all of the time.  Prosecco will give you mimosa a sweeter taste that pairs nicely with a tart apple cider.
