Ran out of orange juice one morning and was too hot and tired to squeeze more ... and voila! It also tastes lighter than the orange juice version and doesn't diminish that lovely champagne fizz. Perfect for the south, where its 85 degrees at 10 am for brunch out on the porch!

Cook's Notes:

The ratio is 3 parts Champagne to 2 parts cider.

This recipe works with any sparkling fruit cider. I've tried peach and apple as well, with wonderful results! This is also less labor intensive if you are like me and prefer fresh hand-squeezed orange juice from the backyard to the store-bought, artificially sweetened, 20% juice stuff.

My stomach has a hard time really early in the morning with orange juice so this was a great change! I used apple cider because I couldn't find pear cider. Very nice light flavors. Read More
