Apple Cider Cocktail

Apple cider cocktail is a sparkling and fancy drink to enjoy at party events or anytime you want to be spoiled.

Thanksgiving day is right at the door, so recipes are already written or memorised, but how about the drink?

Well, here, many of you may opt for wine – which is the classic and probably the best choice if speaking about a qualitative drink. I like wine and try always to have a glass for the evening.

Okay, but if speaking about a fancy and stylish night? 

Apple Cider Drink Apple cider champagne cocktail is one great option. Ready in 2 minutes and heady for hours. 

I adore sparkling wines; they aren’t too strong but look fashionable and fizzy. Champagne glasses are irresistible, and the cocktail is super delicious and bubbly.

An effervescent cocktail where different flavours meet and create something magical.

The cinnamon aroma makes you feel the holiday spirit, champagne adds the festive feeling, and the apple cider neutralises all these flavours in one glass. 

Apple cider cocktail is one of the drinks I use to sip while talking with my friends and enjoying every minute. My husband is the best barman that tries to spoil me nicely and elegantly. Optionally, you can put all the mixture in a shaker full of ice; we usually skip this moment as we want it authentic, stylish, and bubbling.  

This simple to make cocktail is a must-try as it will nicely decorate your party table, and you will earn lots of compliments.

Every girl deserves a little sparkle moment, especially if it is a holiday. 

The ingredients:

Apple cider – is a low-alcohol drink that nicely pairs with champagne. Many people drink apple cider as it is, and the taste is charming and tasty but mixed with sparkling wine, it tastes even better.

Apple Cider Cocktail IngredientsChampagne – here you can choose anything you like. I will advise you to buy only dry or extra dry Brut wine. It is a natural drink made traditionally with natural gases and no artificial flavours or other chemicals. Sparkling wines are never missing from my house, and I like them mixed with different flavours; one of these is with Aperol.

Brandy – rum or any other cognac you have at home is sufficient. A shot of brandy adds more alcohol and headiness. You may skip it, but I like that balance of aromas and tastes. Watch the video below 👇

In a separate plate or bowl, mix brown sugar with cinnamon and rim the glasses in the mixture to make them sparkle and look irresistible. 

Apple Cider CocktailI adore nice-looking champagne glasses with a delicious and divine taste inside. It makes me easily heady and nicely feeling dizzy.

You can easily make this cocktail non-alcoholic by skipping brandy and replacing it with non-alcoholic sparkling wine.

It won’t be that delicious apple cider cocktail, but you will be satisfied that all guests have at least tried it.

How to make an Apple Cider Cocktail?

There are two options for making this simple but bubbly drink. 

One option is where you adjust all the shots and drinks, and the other is mixing all the ingredients in a bowl and pouring in every glass.

Apple Cider CocktailIt is up to you to decide which version is best for you. 

The most important part while making this apple cider cocktail is to pay attention to the gradation and the amount of champagne you want to feel in a glass. Decorate with some apple slices and enjoy every moment of life.

Sparkle all night next to your beloved ones.
