Our apple cider mimosas feature champagne, apple cider, and caramel vodka. Make them individually or in a pitcher for a party!

Kim and I enjoy the occasional mimosa. Usually, we drink them over brunch or when we’re having appetizers for dinner.

For today, Kim is sharing a Fall-themed twist on this classic cocktail. It’s her apple cider mimosas. To add a little kick of flavor and alcohol, she added caramel flavored vodka.

How to make individual apple cider mimosas:

First, we’re going to go over how to make the drinks individually. After that, I’ll explain how to make them by the pitcher.

Fresh cider added to the champagne glasses.
Start with the cider, then add the vodka.

Start by pouring 1.5 ounces of apple cider into a champagne flute. Be careful and don’t splash it all over the place.

Caramel vodka being added to the cider.
Once the cider has been added, pour in the caramel vodka.

Next, add 1/2 an ounce of caramel flavored vodka to the cider. You can use a bar spoon to mix them together. But, that’s optional.

Last, top off the mimosa with chilled champagne. That’s it, the apple cider mimosa is done!

Champagne added to the vodka and cider.
Top everything off with the fresh, bubbly champagne.

How to make the recipe in a pitcher:

Now, to make this drink by the pitcher, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 750 mL Bottle of Champagne (preferably chilled)
  • 6 Ounces Apple Cider (chilled)
  • 2 Ounces Caramel Vodka (chilled)

All you need to do is combine all the ingredients together in a large pitcher and serve. Pretty easy, right?

Well, that’s all there is to making these drinks. With that being said, I’m going to go over how to rim your glasses in sugar.

Once the mimosas are mixed, simply sip and enjoy!

How to rim the glasses in decorative sugar:

To begin, grab two small bowls. Just keep in mind they have to be large enough to dip the flutes into them.

An upside down champagne glass dipped in water.
Dip the glass in water or simple syrup.

Afterward, add water (or simple syrup) to one bowl and a few tablespoons of decorative sugar to the other bowl.

Finally, dip the rim of the glass into the water and then the sugar. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have sugar rimmed glasses.

Kim and I hope you enjoy the mimosas responsibly and wish you all the best 🙂

The upside down dampened champagne glasses dipped in gold sugar.
We chose gold sugar, but you can use any type of sugar you want.

Apple Cider Mimosa Tips:

  • For chilled mimosas, simply place the ingredients into your fridge at least 2 hours before preparing. Do not prepare the drinks and then refrigerate them; otherwise, the champagne will go flat. Additionally, we don’t recommend adding ice to the drinks because it will dilute the flavor as it melts.
  • As always, use the best champagne and vodka that you can afford. The cheaper the alcohol, the cheaper the flavor.
  • Adding garnishes, like sugar around the rim, are always optional. Feel free to skip that step if you wish.
