Every spring, all the local restaurants roll out their brunch menus and start setting up their outdoor seating. I absolutely love it and we always go an order mimosas with our brunch. But, what I love even more is brunch on a gorgeous fall morning topped off with delicious apple cider mimosas. Sure, I may need a comfy sweater to eat outdoors but that makes it even better!
The great thing about these apple cider mimosas is that you can make them with just two simple ingredients. Of course, you can add a few extra items if you want to dress them up even more. For mine, I usually dip the rim in apple cider and then into cinnamon sugar. I have also added caramel vodka to mine for a caramel apple cider mimosa!
Ingredients for Apple Cider Mimosas:
2 oz apple cider + more for rim
2 oz caramel vodka (optional)
2 oz Champagne (4 oz if not adding caramel vodka)
Cinnamon sugar (optional)
Let’s Make It:
1. If you are going to rim the glasses in sugar, dip each glass into a small amount of apple cider. Then, dip into a plate of cinnamon sugar.
2. Combine apple cider and caramel vodka, if using, in champagne flute. Top off with champagne.
These apple cider mimosas are perfect for all your fall events. I especially love them when our tailgates have to start pretty early in the morning and our more traditional drinks (beer, vodka tonics, etc) seem just a little bit too strong. I even have plastic champagne flutes to take to tailgates so I don’t have to worry about the glass ones getting broken.
