Apple Cider Mimosas are a simple and delicious treat that's made with only 2 ingredients! They're the perfect addition to a fall brunch or Thanksgiving dinner. I love this recipe because it's so easy to make and comes out beautiful every time!
Mimosas are my go to drink at brunch, and every fall one of my favorite restaurants makes the most delicious apple cider mimosa. The first time I had it I was hooked - what a great idea! It's crisp, refreshing cocktail and tastes like fall in a glass.
Usually mimosas are made with champagne and a splash of orange juice, but in this version you swap out the orange juice for apple cider. I like to also add on a little sugar cinnamon rim to make them feel extra fancy.
I love serving apple cider mimosas at my brunches or to guests at Thanksgiving. They look like such a fun, fancy drink but they're so easy to make!
- Apple Cider
- Optional for cinnamon sugar topping - 3 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp cinnamon and water
How to Make Apple Cider Mimosas
If you're planning to do the cinnamon sugar rim, mix together the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. Fill a separate small bowl with a little water and then dip the top of the champagne flute in it. Dip the top of the flute into the cinnamon sugar mix and spin so it gets completely covered.
Pour in a splash of apple cider (I usually do about ¼ of the champagne flute), and top off with the champagne. You can add more apple cider or champagne depending on your taste! You could also garnish with a little apple slice on the side!
