Looking for a fun and festive drink to add to your holiday menu? Look no further than this cinnamon apple cider holiday mimosa recipe.
Whoever decided it was socially acceptable to drink before noon as long as you call it a mimosa is my best friend.
I’m kidding, of course. I actually don’t drink that early in the day, because if I do, I’ll be ready for a nap before lunch. But, I’m a huge fan of a good mimosa while I prep for the holidays.
This year, these cinnamon apple cider mimosas are my drink of choice, and I may just have to keep the ingredients stocked and at the ready from now until Christmas.
This holiday mimosa would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving prep, holiday parties, brunch, and all the way up to Christmas morning by the tree.

- One jug of spiced apple cider: you can get any kind you like, but personally, I love the Suja Spiced Apple Cider.
- One bottle of sparkling white wine or champagne: I usually grab a Prosecco from here.
- Sliced apples (optional)
- 1-2 tbs sugar (optional)
- 1-2 tbs ground cinnamon (optional)
On a small plate, mix your cinnamon and sugar together. Dip your wine glass or champagne flute in water, then dip it in the sugar so it sticks to the rim.
Add a healthy splash of apple cider to your prepared glass. Then, add a few frozen cranberries to the mix and top off your glass with your bubbles of choice.
If you want to pretty up your glass, add a slice of apple to the rim as a garnish.
