My Apple Cider Mimosa is cool, crisp and perfect for sipping all fall long! A mixture of sweet & bubbly, this simple drink recipe deserves a place at your Thanksgiving table. This mimosa recipe is my all time favorite, but you could also call it an Apple Cider Cocktail for the guys in your life.
Apple Cider Mimosa
It seems like fall weather can’t make up it’s mind. One day it’s super warm, the next day it’s chilly. So crisp, cool Apple Cider Mimosas seem like the perfect drink!
Mimosas are the perfect, simple drink. They feel festive but without a fuss. And it helps that there’s an orchard just down the road where I can grab a jug of fresh pressed cider, all autumn long.
When our fall harvest work grinds to a half, as farm work sometimes does, my Apple Cider Mimosa seems to work magic to soothe nerves and take the edge off.
How to Make an Apple Cider Cocktail
This mimosa recipe is super easy to make and tastes like autumn in a glass. (yes, that’s a thing). All it takes to make this fall cocktail is apple cider, prosecco and a cinnamon sugar rim.
If you’re wondering what Prosecco is, you can get a full definition here of Champagne vs Prosecco. But basically, Prosecco is a less expensive option, and since we’re cutting it in the mimosa recipe anyway, I say save your dollars for a splurge.
Apple Cider Mimosas – One of my favorite cocktails and perfect for this time of year, including serving it as a Thanksgiving cocktail!
It couldn’t be any easier – share with a friend and grab a cozy seat. Pour, drink, and repeat!
