My favorite sparkling cider now is adding a blood orange twist with some orange bitters.  It makes it feel grown up and sophisticated!

So good!  I’m always on the lookout for great non-alcoholic alternatives these days 🙂

Nice to see you Joey!

I’d think just about anything you can do to a champagne cocktail you could do to a sparkling cider. I think the catch is to avoid making it overly sweet. One of my favorite things to do to a champ. cockatail is to add a bit of lychee juice and plop a lychee in. The orange bitters sound great too! Perhaps something within your color scheme?

Orange definitely compliments cider well! I’m with you DG. Yum.

We just had raspberries in each glass, which makes it look nice, but I’m sure if you’re looking to change your flavor, or just make it pretty.

@ DG:  Thanks!  I work from home on Wednesdays now, so I have time since I don’t have to commute. 🙂

What if you rimmed the champagne glasses with some type of flavored sugar–like rose petal sugar, cinnamon, lemon, something like that?

Not sure if this is too plain but I def agree with one raspberry or even blackberry in each glass.
