Why we love this cocktail-
- We love the combination of apple cider and Prosecco in this drink. Prosecco is a sparkling wine so the flavors mix beautifully, and it is our favorite bubbly drink for Fall.
- Just two ingredients in this recipe, not counting the garnish!
You are definitely going to want a sip of this bubbly treat!
- 3 oz. chilled Prosecco
- 3 oz. Apple cider
- Fresh apple slices
Tip: Fresh apple cider is delicious. If you can’t get your hands on fresh apple cider, we love Musselman’s, which you can find at your local grocery store.
- Prosecco- You can always use your favorite champagne, instead! Anything bubbly.
- Apple Cider- Not a fan of cider? Substitute this for apple juice!
- Garnish- You could also garnish this with a fresh sprig of rosemary. If you do use apples, make sure to give them a little bath in lemon juice to prevent them from browning.
- To make this drink a little sweeter, add a splash of simple syrup!
How to make an Apple Cider Bellini
In your favorite champagne flutes, combine apple cider and prosecco. Give it a gentle stir, and garnish with fresh apple slices and enjoy!
Tip: We don’t use a cocktail shaker for this, because the bubbly prosecco wouldn’t do well being shaken.
Large Batch Apple Cider Bellinis
To make a big batch of apple cider bellinis to serve a crowd, you can simply combine a bottle of prosecco and 3 cups or 24 oz apple cider into a large pitcher. Keep chilled until ready to serve!
A good brunch is not complete without mimosas or bellinis, and this recipe has a glorious taste of Fall that everyone will love. It is the perfect brunch drink during the cooler Fall months.
Apple Cider Bellini FAQs
What is the alcohol content of a bellini?
Bellini cocktails average 7% ABV, but you can go by whatever alcohol content your Prosecco has, although it will be a little less since it is diluted by the apple cider or other puree ingredients in your Bellini.
