Autumn Spiced Mimsie (Mimosa)


 

This is a great drink to serve at brunch or during hors d'oeuvres, mouth watering any time of day! I revamped the traditional mimosa to suit the season.  Serve an Autumn Spice Mimsie as the perfect way to add a splash of autumn flavor to your Thanksgiving meal, or the morning after. 


Ingredients:

Champagne or Sparkling Wine of your choice (I use extra dry or brut and rose' works great, too)
Fresh Apple Cider
Sliced Organic Apples
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Pure Maple Syrup



In a small pitcher, mix about two cups of the apple cider, a couple of teaspoons or so of the maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon (or a few shakes) of the pumpkin pie spice. Taste and adjust to suit your taste. 

Fill the champagne glass 1/2-3/4 of the way. Then pour apple cider mixture over then garnish with apple slice. You can change the quantities of champagne versus apple cider mix according to your taste. The quantities of this mix will yield about two bottles worth of the mimosas. 

Cheers!!!
