While passing out glasses of Champagne for a toast at wedding receptions is a delightful tradition, not everyone drinks alcohol. So it is nice to be able to offer a festive alternative. These Autumn Mocktails are very pretty and easy to make.
Combine 3 parts chilled apple cider or sparkling apple cider with 1 part chilled cranberry juice.
To serve, dip top edge of a champagne glass in simple syrup (or simple syrup spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves); then dip in crystallized gold sugar. Fill glass almost to the top with apple cider mixture. Serve right away. Cheers!
