How to Make Apple Cider Mimosas:
- Place about a tablespoon of caramel sauce into a shallow bowl and dip the rim of champagne glasses into caramel.
- In another shallow bowl, add coarse sugar. Dip caramel rim into sugar, turning to coat evenly.
- Any coarse or raw sugar will work for this garnish, I used vanilla sugar. This creates an elegant garnish for the cocktails that also tastes great with the apple flavors.
- Pour apple cider into glasses.
- Fill with sparkling wine.
- Garnish with apple slices.
Dip apple slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning.
