I’m not really into creating new year’s resolutions, but I like to set goals for each new year. Nothing too crazy but always something that I’d enjoy trying to achieve. This year? Just traveling more. And those plans are already being set in motion. =)

What are your new year’s resolutions or goals? I would love to hear yours!

I thought we could all welcome the new year with apple cider mimosas! Because the new year starts on a Sunday, these would be perfect for Sunday brunch, right?

I love mimosas because they’re so simple to make with just two ingredients: juice and champagne. Both of which are easy to obtain. I figured we’d all have champagnes on hand for welcoming in the new year anyways so why not use leftover champagne for breakfast? That is, if there’s still leftovers after all the celebrations.

Let’s take a few minutes to create these amazing drinks, and welcome in the new year!

Pour apple cider into glasses or mason jars for a more rustic touch. You can use homemade apple cider, store bought, or fresh from the farmer’s market. No apple cider? You can always replace it with your favorite fresh juices. Orange juice is always a classic.

Top the glasses with sparkling champagne. Depending on how much you like champagne, you add as much or as little as you like. Top with cinnamon sticks for garnish and for extra cinnamon flavor.
