Drink Winter Holidays

Smack Yo Mama Mimosa

By Tamara Germanowski

Mimosas are as simple as juice plus champagne, and this apple cider mimosa is a wonderful way to welcome fall. Tamara made several batches of this tasty apple cider mimosa at DizzyFest 15, and we couldn’t help coming back for seconds, and thirds.

Celebrate the holidays in style with the simplicity of this Smack Yo Mama Mimosa.
