Mmmm… is there anything better than the flavors of apples and spices together? Why, yes…there is! Add tequila! 😉 I typically enjoy rum with my apple cider. But, after I saw How Sweet It Is put out a delicious looking Apple Cider Margarita, I knew I would have to try something different. (BTW– one of my favorite food blogs!)
The Apple Cider Margarita was a HUGE hit last thanksgiving as everyone mingled and snacked before the big meal.
I had to use some items that I had on hand, so my drink is a tad different. It was super delicious though. Please let me know what you think if you try it!
Apple Cider Margarita
1 1/4 oz Gold Tequila (I used Jose Cuervo Gold)
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Orange Juice
3 oz Apple Cider
Apple Slices for garnish
1 orange wedge to help rim glass (lime would work as well… but, oranges are sweeter)
Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and white sugar mixed together on a plate for the rim of glass
1 shaker with ice
Slide the fruit of an orange around the lip of a glass and then stick the glass in the cinnamon sugar mixture to rim the glass.
Pour the tequila, triple sec, orange juice, apple cider into the shaker and shake to combine.
Pour the entire contents of the shaker (ice and all) into a pre-rimmed glass.
Garnish with an apple slice.
YUM! I hope this year I can try the exact recipe from How Sweet It Is…. It looks so good!
