An Adult Fall Drink: Cider Champagne!

Posted by on October 4, 2015

A few weeks ago my other half and I headed up to Apple Hill in Northern California.  For those that reside in NorCal, this is the place to go to get your fall apple fix on.  Homemade Apple Cider Donuts, Apple Cider, Caramel Apples and so much more greet you in this area.

The area has over 30+ Apple Orchards within the area that showcases its plethora of fruits.  Some orchards have you pick your own, others have the caramel apples, donuts, and everything else apple waiting for you.  It always makes for a fun weekend during the fall with loved ones.

While visiting one of the Orchards, we ran across Cider Champagne! We were hooked instantly and knew we had to recreate the fall beverage right at home:

Cider-Champagne

Ingredients:

Apple Cider/Apple Juice

Champagne (we used Cook’s Dry Brut)

Apples, to garnish

Directions:

Pour 1/2 Cup of Apple Cider/Apple Juice into glass

Pour 1/3 Cup of Champagne (Brut Style) into glass

Stir together then Garnish with Apple Slices.

Then enjoy!  We were pretty amazed on how well Apple Cider tasted with Champagne.  This has easily become one of our new fall favorites.  We’re hoping it will become one of yours too!

If you want to make an non-alcoholic version we recommend mixing together Apple Cider with Sparkling Apple Cider, that combination will make a sweet sparkler with a bit more flavor.
