Mimosas and Apple Sangria: Your Guests Will Thank You

Add to Favorites

Today's Thanksgiving prep: shop for nonperishables like alcohol. And when you do, pick up a few bottles of sparkly white wine to make mimosas and sangria for your holiday guests.  

Cheers to you for planning ahead!


Mimosas with Cielo Prosecco
Prosecco is a bubbly, fruity wine that makes terrific mimosas. It also makes an excellent aperitif. A simple recipe of half juice and half sparkling wine makes mimosas a quick and easy breakfast or brunch beverage that instantly elevates the event. Juice your own fruit juice or use our Cold Pressed Juice. Both will give the drinks vibrant color and bright, fresh flavor, which will make all the difference. And with so many fabulous fruit juice options, perhaps you need to test a few out before Thanksgiving morning!

Apple Sangria
Apples, cranberries, sparkling white wine, and apple cider make this drink a holiday treat you can serve from Thanksgiving to New Year's. (Recipe and photo thanks to Damn Delicious.)
