The one thing that got us through? These amazing Cider Apple Mimosas. Check it out.
Technically, it's not actually a mimosa since there's no citrus juice, but it makes it sound pretty and it's rather tasty, so no one will mind. If someone does, show them the door. We don't need that kind of negativity. Here's what you'll need-
Just because it's called a mimosa doesn't mean your kids should miss out! You can make this with sparkling white grape juice in place of champagne for a kid friendly version.
We used a Moscato champagne, but any other variety will work. Next time, I'll probably try a Brut, as the Moscato was a bit sweet, especially when paired with cider.
Our cinnamon and sugar is a pretty even blend, but feel free to add less. The rim garnish hardens to a lovely crystal crust which was absolutely delicious!
