Apple Cider Mimosa
The Apple Cider Mimosa combines the fresh and sweet flavors of apple cider with the sparkly fizz of champagne. It's the perfect mouthwatering blend that can set the tone for the entire meal. To make your Apple Cider Mimosa more flavorful, use cinnamon-sugar rims on your champagne flutes. For an added touch, you can also throw in some whole cloves and apple slices as garnish.
Autumn Sangria is a wine cocktail with spiced cider, apples, and cranberries. You can use red or white wine in this recipe, depending on your preference. The warm spiciness of the cider and the tartness of cranberries blend well with the wine to create a refreshing punch you can serve in a large pitcher. With the addition of a sprig of fresh rosemary, the Autumn Sangria becomes even more festive, turning your table into a charming autumn wonderland.
The Cranberry Margarita is a great cocktail that adds a bit of tangy sweetness to your Thanksgiving party. Its unique taste is due to the sweetness of the cranberry mixed with the sourness of the lime and the kick from the tequila. Rim the glasses with some sugar and lime zest to make this cocktail more attractive to your guests, and add fresh cranberries and lime wedges as garnish to ramp up the drink's presentation.
This Maple Old-Fashioned is perfect when you want a dessert cocktail for your spread. For this recipe, you mix maple syrup and orange juice in a glass and then add some ice and bourbon.
