We all know I love a good glass of bubbly 😉 And, Thanksgiving is a week away!! I am not cooking this year, taking the year off as it is my first without my Mom. I absolutely love cooking and entertaining, but I did not handle some of the firsts without her well- her birthday or my birthday… So, I thought the pressure to cook for a huge group would do me in rather than distract me. But, I plan on eating and drinking and maybe even a mimosa in the morning? I dont know, we are escaping to the beach this year and my plan is to soak up my girls & Nick and attempt to be happy because that is what my Mom would want. Wow, that just got deep and personal for a mimosa post! I struggle with remaining light hearted on the blog while grieving, so, occasionally I need to get the realness out there… But, hey mimosas. Sparkling apple cider mimosas. Sparkling wine is appropriate year round.
Sparkling Apple Cider
Dry Sparkling Wine
I know I called this a recipe, but there really is no right proportion to a mimosa. If I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner, Id only add a splash of champagne because I would need to be productive. If I was not cooking… maybe a splash of cider instead 😉
The cider is very sweet, which is why you need a dry sparkling wine. If you like your drinks sweeter you will want more cider. Garnish with an apple slice. Enjoy your mimosa, it is 2 ingredients, we can all make it happen!
Happy Thanksgiving! So grateful for all you readers!!
