What’s fun about this recipe is the added touch of the caramel and brown sugar on the rim of your champagne glass to really bring out those fall festive flavors.
It’s the perfect addition to your fall tablescape and the perfect drink to serve your guests at your next fall harvest party.
Dipping Caramel (16oz)
Brown Sugar (1 cup)
Cinnamon (1 tbsp)
Apple cider/juice (1 gallon)
Prosecco or champagne (750 ml – one bottle)
Start by grabbing a small plate and adding 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon. Mix those thoroughly using a fork or spoon. On a separate plate, add ⅔ cup of the dipping caramel (save the rest of the caramel for the leftover apples – you won’t regret it).
To assemble, dip the rim of your glass into the caramel and then the mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Then, pop open your favorite bottle of prosecco or champagne and fill your glasses to your liking (recommended ¾ cup). Top it off with apple cider (¼ cup), and if you’re feeling fancy, you can even garnish with an apple slice.
Next up, say cheers + enjoy!
This recipe is super easy to double, triple, and can easily make enough for a pitcher for your fall gathering.
If you decide to make a pitcher, don’t add the champagne until right before you’re ready to serve it to make sure the drink remains fizzy.
The easy thing about mimosas is the amount differs depending on your taste preference. You can add more juice versus champagne or the other way around.
This is also an easy recipe that you can garnish to your preference. If you don’t like the brown sugar and caramel rim, you don’t have to add it. Or if you want to change it up and add cinnamon and sugar instead of brown sugar, you can do that. Make it what you want it to be.
To add an extra touch to the drink, add a dash of caramel syrup into the mimosa. Just enough to complement the caramel on the rim and not to overpower the apple cider.
For an added element of fun, add apple slices into the mimosa, or add an apple slice onto the rim of your glass to level the drink up once again.
To switch up the taste, add in an ounce or two of cinnamon apple vodka or Honeycrisp apple vodka.
Or to make it non-alcoholic and let the kids have some fun too, switch out the champagne for sparkling apple cider.
