Fall (autumn) is my absolute favorite time of year! I love the crisp weather, changing leaves, and delicious food.
One of the most classic flavor combinations that you will find is cinnamon apple, and it is everywhere!
I love finding ways to use a flavor in unique recipes and make it versatile, like this Cinnamon Apple Sauce.
And since I also have an obsession with sparkling wine, this Cinnamon Apple Cider Mimosa is a fun twist on an autumn cocktail!
Technically to be called Champagne, the sparkling wine has to come from a specific region of France.
Use any sparkling wine that you love. Since you are flavoring it, I would not go too fancy or expensive.
I like to use brut (dry) or extra brut wine since the apple brings sweetness.
If you want it super sweet, try something like a prosecco!
Another fun twist for this apple cocktail is to make it warm!
Simply heat up the apple cider first, and then assemble according to directions. And use a wine that is room temperature instead of cold.
I just LOVE decorating cocktails at parties and gatherings with fun and beautiful garnishes.
Not only are they beautiful, but they add a wonderful aroma to the drink as you sip it!
- Pour two dashes of ground cinnamon into the bottom of the champagne flute.
- Add the apple cider (approximately 1/3 to 1/2 up the glass). Gently stir the cinnamon into the apple cider with a knife or straw.
- Top off the flute with sparkling wine, filling to 1/2 to 1 inch below the rim.
- Garnish as desired with apple slice, cinnamon stick, and star anise pod. Serve immediately.
