Apple Cider Mimosas are so crispy and refreshing, you’ll want to drink them all day long – so don’t just save this cider mimosa recipe for brunch!
Who says Fall cocktails have to be warm or cooked up in a crock pot? There’s 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’t 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…but 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!
What Alcohol Goes Best With Cider?
Yep, I knew you were wondering that. I mean, cider and champagne mixed together…you know that’s going to be a tasty flavor combination. If you’re making this cocktail recipe for a party, you can try setting out warm and cold cider along with different types of alcohol and liquor to mix in. That way your guests can pick their favorite flavors!
Just like there’s different ways to serve cider cocktails, warm or cold, there’s also so many different options for types of alcohol to mix with apple cider. It’s going to really come down to personal preference but we’ll get you started with a few ideas!
Rum (Dark Rum)
Apple or Other Fruit Flavored Flavored Liquors
There’s an extra kick in these sparkling cider drinks that comes from an apple liquor I really love. Again, it’s not too sweet but it tastes just like a crisp apple and completely kicks the apple flavor up in any cider cocktail!
Should I Use Champagne Or Prosecco In A Mimosa Recipe?
Totally up to you.
If you have a favorite champagne that you really like drinking, then by all means, pour away. Typically when you are mixing a drink with champagne you don’t really want to use something really pricey since you aren’t getting the full flavor of the champagne.
There are some really affordable champagnes that we do love so just check out what is in your price range. As far as Prosecco, well that’s a champagne cocktail standard. One of our favorite bottles of Prosecco is only about 13 bucks. It’s crispy, not sweet and is goo enough to drink on it’s own or mixed in a cocktail recipe like this one!
