8 cups unsweetened apple cider
2 apples, cut in half
1 mandarin, cut in half
5 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
¼ cup caramel sauce
½ cup caramel liqueur

Blackberry Mimosa
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
1 cup blackberries, reserving ¼ cup for garnish
1 bottle sparkling wine
Fresh rosemary for garnish

In a small pot over medium heat, mix together sugar, water and ¾ cup blackberries. Allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until blackberries release their juices. Remove from heat and strain mixture to remove blackberries from the syrup. Allow to cool completely before making mimosas. Pour a splash of the syrup into each serving glass. Gently top with sparkling wine. To create an ombre effect, don’t pour the sparkling wine directly into the glass. Place a spoon on top of the glass and pour it over the spoon. Garnish with rosemary and fresh blackberries.
