The champagne cocktail that was a staple for me this holiday season was the Apple Cider Mimosa. It's painfully simple, just combine one part apple cider with two parts champagne, and voila! If you're feeling a little adventurous throw in a teaspoon of brown sugar and an ounce of bourbon. Its a sweeter more alcoholic version, need I say more?
Apple Cider Mimosa
1 tsp brown sugar
1 ounce bourbon
4 ounces Prosecco or other sparkling wine
2 ounces fresh apple cider
Combine bourbon and brown sugar in champagne glass, fill with sparkling wine and top with apple cider.
