This fall cocktail is perfect for your Thanksgiving or Christmas brunch menu. It shines beautifully with a gorgeous amber color that works wonderfully well with Harvest and Christmas decor.

The flavors are of course extremely popular.

Who doesn’t love bubbly apple cider? This tastes just like Martinelli’s sparkling cider with an adult twist. So nice.

In fact, it also makes a good mocktail for kids. Club soda or Martinelli’s can easily replace the sparkling wine.

Apple Cider Mimosa-Ungarnished
Apple cider mimosa is pretty even ungarnished. A simple two ingredient wine cocktail.

Large group Serving Idea:

Put this apple cider champagne cocktail on the list for your next mimosa bar, special event, tailgate party, super bowl gathering or girls night out.

The garnish is optional of course. Just pour and serve if that’s your pleasure.

The Proper Mimosa Glass:

Champagne cocktails look elegant in champagne flutes. But that’s not the only reason a flute is preferred.

The tall narrow proportions of the champagne flute serve a purpose. The narrow profile and mouth of the glass retains more bubbles. True!

The bubbles can’t get out as easily and so the drink stays sparkling longer in a flute. Stemless flutes or similar glasses work just as well as the fancy stemmed champagne glasses.

Apple Cider Mimosa Recipe:

I DO use both champagne and sparkling white wine for mimosa recipes. They are all fairly inexpensive.


Choose your bubbly according to your own tastes. An extra dry brut champagne is less sweet than a white sparkling prosecco wine.

We love this rim for bringing is a new element of warmth. The cinnamon sugar rim adds more Fall flavor to this apple cinnamon drink. You KNOW it’s good. Apples and cinnamon are perfect together. So try it!
