Every Fall/Winter, my very favorite cocktails seem to center around Apple Cider. I try to innovate the idea every year, because I simply can’t get enough. It started with Apple Pie Sangria, transformed into Apple Pie Punch, and even took a stop around Homemade Caramel Apple Cider. There’s just something so cozy about apples, cinnamon, and a refreshing cocktail twist. They’re some of the most popular recipes on my site, and for good reason. But this year, this cocktail  is my favorite.

This Sparkling Apple Pie on the Rocks is quite possibly the simplest of all the apple cocktails I’ve made, and also quite possibly the most delicious. One reason…CHAMPAGNE! It’s made with a delicious (and way too easy) Caramel Apple Simple Syrup, Apple Cider, and some Bubbly. Doesn’t that just sound like a dream?! What are you waiting for, make some already!

This Sparkling Apple Pie on the Rocks just wouldn’t be possible without my absolute fave Barefoot Bubbly Brut Champagne. You can see right there on the neck of the bottle…”Most Awarded Sparkling Wine Brand in US Competitors”. For good reason. It’s got an amazing price point, a crisp and delicious flavor, and all the bubbles. I’m hooked. I also love that its so widely available…I never have to go without my Barefoot! It’s the perfect simple compliment to this favorite holiday cocktail.

Apple Pie was meant for the holidays and the holidays were meant for Apple Pie. You should have it in as many forms as possible when celebrating with friends and family around Christmas and ringing in the New Year. This Sparkling Apple Pie on the Rocks is the perfect way to cheers with loved ones, don’t you think?

This looks amazing!! Cheers!

I'd love to try this! However, I've never seen gold sprinkles or cinnamon apple cider

    Hey Melissa- I got both at my local grocery store. The gold sprinkles are completely optional and regular apple cider will also work just fine. If you happen to find them at the store, they're fun additions but not necessary. Hope you love the drink! Happy New Year!

My obsession with this drink (and these photos) is BEYOND! Love love anything bubbly. Happy New Year!

It's Easter Sunday, yet I think this drink would work beautifully right now. I could make that simple syrup, too. What do you think, should I do it?

Would Asti Spumante work instead of champagne?
