Ok guys, so I’m not a huge fan of fall (mainly because of what comes after-winter!). But I do have to give credit where credit is due. Mainly apples, apple pies and apple cider 😉 All those yummy fall foods are always what the doctor ordered! They seem to hit the spot and always have you craving blanket scarves and nights by the fire. A little #basic but oh so good!
It’s still been a little on the warm side here in Montreal but I still wanted to find a drink that captured that fall essence but could be drank, well now! I decided to mix in my favourite combo of sparkling wine and St-Germain liqueur. Originally I wasn’t sure how it would taste but I was a quick convert- guys this is so good! You definitely taste a lot of the cider but the bubbles help lighten it up and the St-Germain gives it a little something else. It’s perfect for fall brunches, cocktail parties or just a girl’s night in.
If you’re an apple cider fan like me, it’s sure to be a new favourite! And if you’re a bubbles fan (also like me) you’ll love it as well!
Read on for the recipe and cheers!!
Ps this is one of my favourite kind of cocktails- a simple one! There’s only three ingredients making it so simple to put together!
Apple Cider Mimosas

- 3 ounces sparkling wine a cava or prosecco will work just fine!
