5 Minute Apple Cider Mimosas Recipe Adds Sparkle to Your Holiday (or Any Festive Occasion) | Cocktails

I’m not a big drinker, but I to like Mimosas. I appreciate it classic mimosa made with orange juice, but I also like a “mimosa menu” with options other than orange juice. As to fall happens, it just doesn’t seem right to drink a bright orange citrus cocktail; such a drink seems more suitable for spring or summer. This time of year we need something more seasonal, more autumnal.

This is where the mimosa menu comes in, with the apple cider mimosa. It’s the perfect festive fall cocktail (especially for those of us who don’t like flavored beers). This cocktail will add sparkle to your Thanksgiving having dinner. It will also be appreciated during a romantic date or when your book club comes. Mimosas go with everything! And this recipe is about as simple and festive as it gets. Cheers!
