Easy Apple Cider Cocktail Spritzer

Ingredients

  • chilled apple cider

Coating rim of glasses with cinnamon and sugar (optional)

  • honey
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 

Directions 

Cinnamon Sugar mixture - in a small bowl,  mix sugar and cinnamon then pour on a small plate. Next, add a small amount of honey on a separate small plate.

FOR CHAMPAGNE GLASS 

Coat rim of glass with the cinnamon sugar mixture (optional) -  dip the rim of the glass in the honey, then dip it in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Fill champagne glass with half apple cider and half  Prosecco or Champagne. 

FOR COCKTAIL/WINE/TUMBLER GLASSES

Coat rim of glass with cinnamon sugar (optional), then fill glass 3/4 full with ice, add half  apple cider and half  Prosecco or champagne.  Add 3 or 4 thinly sliced apples and a fun straw (optional). 

NON- ALCOHOLIC APPLE CIDER SPRITZER

Fill glass with ice and add half club soda and half apple cider. 

For a pretty presentation, you can do a cinnamon sugar rim and add a few slices of apple and a fun straw.
