Mimosas are typically made with champagne and orange juice.  Why not embrace the season and the wonderful Fall flavors by using apple cider instead of orange juice?  Throw in a bit of Caramel flavored vodka and now you have the ultimate Thanksgiving mimosa.  

Especially this year when we’re paring down our Thanksgiving celebrations and going small, you can indulge a bit and start celebrating at brunch!  Why not?

WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE A CARAMEL APPLE MIMOSA?

The best part of mimosas is that they are incredibly easy to make.  For this one, you only need three:

  • Apple cider – you really need cider for this one.  Apple juice isn’t strong enough in flavor.
  • Caramel vodka – You could also use caramel-flavored whiskey for a stronger flavor to the mimosa.  Crown Royal has a great salted caramel product.
  • Sparkling wine – I like prosecco, but Cava or your favorite sparkling wine will work.  Champagne is also good, but I think champagne should be sipped on its own.

Also, make sure that you chill all the ingredients beforehand.  You don’t want ice to water down your cocktail.

WHAT KIND OF SPARKLING WINE IS BEST?

My rule of thumb is to always use a type or brand that you enjoy drinking on its own.  I prefer using a dry prosecco for this cocktail because both the cider and caramel-flavored vodka are sweet.  Using a sweet prosecco on top of those would make the drink cloyingly sweet.

My other rule is to spend at least $10 on the bottle.  Anything that’s more expensive would probably be best enjoyed on its own and anything less than $10 is a headache in the making.
