More About This Recipe

  • I have a confession to make. I am not much of a day drinker.I want to be. It sounds like a good time. But, there is just something about daylight that makes me not so thirsty. Maybe it’s just the fear of what the next morning will feel like if I start drinking before dark.In any case, I do enjoy a good mimosa with brunch every now and then. They’re refreshing and crispy and bubbly. What’s not to love?This time of year is meant for apple cider, not orange juice, though. Let’s change up the classic mimosa, shall we?These somehow manage to be even better than the original. Like a bubbly apple cider soda—just lovely.

Apple Cider Mimosa

It’s no secret on this blog that I love a good mimosa. This apple cider mimosa is no exception, and it is so perfect for Fall. Also, can we just talk about how amazing this mimosa would be for Thanksgiving? Of all of my Fall cocktails, I think this one may be one of my favorite.

Non Alcoholic Apple Cider Mimosa

Two ingredients, simplest, quickest and the best mimosa recipe to make an amazing brunch drink! It’s a healthy, non-alcoholic drink. And, it does not contain added sugar.

This best mimosa recipe is our newly found favorite drink. I have made it a ton of times since I first attempted it. And why do I keep calling it the best mimosa? To know the answer you have to make it yourself. I am sure you will agree with me on this one.

They say mimosa is a brunch drink ( 1 ). However, it is so tempting that I can enjoy it anytime. Especially, in hot summer days, this chilled glass of mimosa is a real comforter. You will need only two ingredients—fresh orange juice and sparkling apple cider for this non-alcoholic drink.

You can also use store brought orange juice however, the fresh one tastes much better as it is not processed and free from tons of preservatives. This topic of orange juice is very close to my heart. Why? Because before starting my PhD, I used to work for a food company where I was in charge of setting up a citrus juice plant. After working so hard on this one the lesson learnt is “squeeze your orange yourself”.

Let me tell you some technical part (it’s not boring, I promise!). Citrus fruits are rich in limonoate A-ring lactone (LARL)–don’t worry you don’t have to remember this to enjoy oranges. When you cut or juice citrus fruit, this LARL gets converted into limonin which is a ‘bittering’ substance. This limonin makes your juice taste bitter. In food industries, they pass the citrus juice through some polymers that absorb the bitter substance from the juice. After this debittering process, they heat the juice at very high temperatures in order to kill the bacteria and sterilize to increase their shelf-life, but at the cost of destroying all those vital nutrients. Even at home if you store freshly squeezed orange juice for several hours it will taste bitter. So, better cut your fruits and consume them soon enough.

So lesson learnt. Recently I invested in an electric citrus juicer that has made my life much easier. It is not that expensive and very convenient than the manual one.

What&rsquos the difference between apple cider and apple juice?

Apple juice is made from apples that have been washed and ground into a mash, wrapped in cloth and pressed into juice. It then goes through a filtration process that removes any pulp and is pasteurized.

Apple cider is raw apple juice that has not undergone a filtration process. You&rsquoll notice that cider is darker than apple juice, and can have sediment that settles at the bottom of its container.

Apple juice has a much longer shelf life than apple cider and can be left at room temperature before it&rsquos opened, and apple cider must be refrigerated. After a while, cider can turn into hard cider!

Long story short &ndash don&rsquot swap apple cider for apple juice.

Apple Cider Mimosa

As you can imagine, there are two parts to this mimosa recipe: apple cider and sparkling wine. For the cider portion of the beverage, choose something made of fresh apples that are a bit sweeter. Try Gala, Fuji, Cortland, Golden Delicious, or Red Delicious varieties.

For the champagne, Town & Country recommends your top mimosa options as follows: Bisol Crede Prosecco Superiore 2016, Zonin Prosecco, or Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut Cava.

We used Porta Leone Prosecco, the flavor described as &ldquoripe apple and pears on the nose, beautiful, steady, pinhead bubble finishing lifted and zesty.&rdquo It was quite tasty and a perfect compliment to the apple cider &ndash I highly recommend it.

You know you want to try apple cider and champagne, so get the recipe below.

Apple Cider Mimosa Recipe

  • Chilled apple cider
  • Sparkling wine of your choice
  • A tiny pinch of cinnamon powder
  • 2 tsp sugar mixed with a tiny pinch of cinnamon (optional)

Take a wet paper towel and run it along the rim of the glasses. Take the cinnamon-sugar mix in a shallow plate and turn the rim of the glasses on it till the cinnamon sugar coats it.

Take the apple cider in a jar and add a pinch of cinnamon powder to it. Stir.

Pour the apple cider into the prepped glasses and top it off with the sparkling wine.

Apple cider mimosas

Apple cider mimosas are super easy to make, just like regular mimosas. Apple cider + champagne = apple cider mimosa.

You could close your eyes, tilt both bottles towards a glass, hope for the best, and you’d still probably end up with a fantastic mimosa. However, if you’re looking for the real deal, look no further.

Ingredients for an apple cider mimosa:

  • ½ cup apple cider of choice
  • ¼ cup champagne
  • 1 apple slice
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Champagne glass

Step 1: Coat the glass

To have this mimosa beat all mimosa’s, coating the rim of your glass with cinnamon sugar will take you to the next level.

Mix the cinnamon and sugar, and sprinkle it evenly onto a small plate. Next, dampen the rim of your glass in water, flip the glass upside down, and dip the rim of the glass onto the cinnamon and sugar mixture. POOF! You’ve just coasted the glass. And honey, it looks amazing.

Step 2: Make the mimosa

Easy peasy, you got this. Add ½ cup of apple cider into the champagne flute, followed by ¼ cup of champagne. We recommend buying a medium-priced bottle of champagne for taste, but if you balled out and have purchased a bunch of cheap champagne, that works too.

Once you’ve filled your glass, cut an apple slice (or however many slices you want), toss it in your drink, and there you have it: you’ve successfully made an apple cider mimosa.

How does it feel? To know your apple cider mimosas fell from heaven? Ok ok, we admit, that was a stretch. But hey, it’s exciting to try new drinks, especially around the holidays.

This holiday season might play out a little differently, but that doesn’t mean you can’t miss out on the holiday spirit. Grab your pod, make some festive mimosas. LIVE the holiday spirit, BE the holiday spirit. With this recipe, you’re already more than halfway there.

A Delicious, Cold Cider Cocktail For Any Time Of The Year

Who says Fall cocktails have to be warm or cooked up in a crock pot? There&rsquos a ton of cold Fall cocktails that I love serving at our Halloween parties or just sitting on the deck on a crisp, Fall night.

And this cold spiked apple cider is definitely one of them. Don&rsquot get me wrong, I love hot apple cider cocktails too, but for me that usually just means apple cider and bourbon mixed together in a big mug.

So that covers our happy hour cocktails&hellipbut what about breakfast? Or Brunch, you know what I mean. The meal that is acceptable to have drinks before noon.

Mimosas always come to mind when brunch is mentioned, so these Apple Cider Mimosas are a super simple cocktail recipe that is really perfect for brunch, but is also going to work any time of the day!

Apple Cider Mimosa is a great way to toast any special occasion or holiday. You can also make it kid-friendly by substituting sparkling white grape juice for the champagne.

Homemade Apple Cider:

Fresh-pressed apple cider is heavenly, but if you don’t live near an orchard, like this Florida girl, I create my own homemade version with spices and citrus. Store-bought apple cider in enhanced with spices and citrus zest. When making cider, I use a cheesecloth bundle to keep all the spices together. I make homemade apple cider the day before I need it, and chill it overnight. You can keep the cheesecloth bundle in while it comes to room temperature, them remove it before chilling.

Cocktails and Mocktails:

Apple Cider Mimosas can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. To make a kid-friendly version, substitute sparkling white grape juice for the champagne. Homemade apple cider can also be use in festive cocktails and mocktails like Apple Cider Sangria and Apple Cider Floats. Apple cider and ice cream is always a hit with my family.

Garnishes are such a fun detail in cocktails and mocktails. Orange slices, cranberries and cinnamon sticks are perfect for the season. You could even add apple slices or a sprig of rosemary for an herbal note. I grow fresh herbs, like mint, to use in both cooking, desserts, and drinks. Apple Cider Mimosas are the perfect party beverage, because it is a batch cocktail that can be made ahead of time. Simply make the homemade apple cider and chill your sparkling wine or champagne. Then, when guests arrive, pop some bubbly and enjoy a delightful cocktail.

Tips, Tricks, and Tools:

  • Here are a few of my favorite entertaining products, like drinkware, bar cars and accessories.
  • A cheesecloth bundle keeps the spice and citrus together, and makes it easy to remove from the cider
  • Always have a non-alcoholic option available for parties where guests may not be drinking. Please drink responsibly.

Apple Cider Mimosa Recipe

Serves 6 (but who’s to say two people couldn’t finish these all themselves. )

  • 1 bottle of champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1 bottle of apple cider
  • Optional: Brown sugar and water to garnish your glass

The recipe is super basic, using only sparkling wine and apple cider. To jazz it up a bit, we rimmed champagne flutes with brown sugar. Start by preparing two small plates. One should have about ¼ inch of water on it, the other plate should have about a ¼ inch thick covering of brown sugar. Start by dipping the top of the champagne flute in the water. Next, dip the top of the flute into the brown sugar to make the sparkling brown sugar rim.

The next step is easy-peasy. Fill the champagne glass half full of sparkling wine, then add the apple cider. We usually go with a 60% champagne to 40% juice ratio, but feel free to adjust your proportions to your liking. When you make this cocktail for friends and family be sure to tag us in the photo on social media – we’d love to see it. Cheers!
