Hey, hey, it’s Friday! And you know what that means – COCKTAILS! We think you worked extra hard this week, so we think you should treat yourself to the most delicious cocktail around (well, at least this week) – our Autumnal Mimosa! See the recipe from sweet Laurel below. – xoxo, LK
Good morning, all! November is finally here, and where I live (in a little desert oasis called Phoenix) that means the return of outdoor entertaining. The cooler temperatures recently inspired me to throw a little autumnal-themed brunch bash, which led me to a new revelation…apple cider mimosas! In all my experimenting with cocktails, I’ve never messed around with the original mimosa equation (Orange juice + Sparkling wine = BRUNCH TIME), and now I’m kicking myself for having missed out on so many delicious, seasonal sips!
This pairing of crisp apple cider with a perfectly chilled sparkling wine (try a nice, dry prosecco or champagne to balance the sweetness of cider) is an autumnal match made in heaven, and perfectly Instagram-worthy once topped with a slice of apple and a sprig of fresh rosemary.
3 oz. dry prosecco or champagne
3 oz. apple cider
Apple slice (choose your favorite variety–I love tart & sweet Honeycrisps–and slice thinly)
Fresh rosemary sprig
1.Fill each glass halfway with apple cider.
2.Pop open your sparkling wine, top off each glass with an equal amount, leaving about an inch of room at the top.
3.Garnish each glass with a fresh slice of apple and rosemary sprig, then enjoy! Happy brunching!
