Sparkling Cider Mimosa with Raspberries

[Mood Tip: Most people recognize orange juice to be a great source of vitamin C, but this refreshing juice also is one of the best dietary sources of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps curb depression.]

This traditional brunch drink gets an update! “Mimosa” traditionally contains fresh orange juice and Champagne, which in this recipe have been replaced with pureed raspberries, orange juice, and sparkling cider. Topping each drink with a frozen raspberry adds color and festivity. Of course, you always can switch back to champagne instead of apple cider for special occasions.


1/3 cup frozen raspberries

juice and zest of 1 large orange

3 cups chilled orange juice

1 (25.4-ounce) bottle of nonalcoholic sparkling cider, well chilled.

6 frozen raspberries for garnish

6 chilled wine glasses



1) In a blender combine frozen raspberries and juice and zest of orange. Blend until smooth. Pour into a small cup or bowl.

2) To each chilled wine glass, add 2 tablespoons raspberry puree, 1/2 cup orange juice, and 1 /2 cup sparkling cider. Stir to mix. Add 1 frozen raspberry to each glass, serve immediately. Pour any remaining juices or cider evenly into glasses.

This recipe works well using Champagne in place of sparkling cider. Makes 6 servings.
