Make these Apple Cider Mimosas for the perfect Fall adult drink! Cider and champagne go perfectly together in this cold spiked apple cider cocktail!
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.
One of our newest Fall cocktails is this Pumpkin Spice Wine Spritzer – a surprise hit with the wife, she doesn’t like anything sweet, she was sure this one was going to be but it’s not.
Just a tasty a refreshing wine spritzer cocktail.
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.
OK, let’s call it brunch then. Brunch cocktails are totally cool.
Mimosas always come to mind when brunch is mentioned, so these Apple Cider Mimosas are a super simple Fall cocktail recipe that is going to work with any meal.
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 yummy flavor combination.
There’s also your Fireball mixed drink recipes or Fireball mixed with apple cider, totally a legit combo. Check out our Sparkling Fireball Apple Sangria is that’s your go to booze. Also another sparkling apple cider cocktail…you see a trend here right?
Bourbon and apple cider cocktails? Well, yes. That’s a standard. We’ve got a few recipes for those cider cocktails, too but too many to list here. This Big Apple Bourbon Cocktail is just one example…
Cinnamon sugar goes around the rim of these Apple Cider Mimosas but if you don’t have a grinder like the kind I used here just mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
I like to use one part cinnamon to two parts sugar, dipping the rims of your glasses in water or corn syrup first so the cinnamon sugar sticks to the glass.
But there’s also 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 your going to make.
Plus it gets the job done a little quicker if you know what I mean…boozy cocktails for brunch, then an afternoon nap.
Sounds like a perfect day to me!
So break out as many of these Fall adult drinks as you can, before Fall is actually over. Then we will need to move on to the Winter adult beverages…stay tuned!Print
