Apple Cider Margarita
And one margarita will rule them all. Yes, this is not a quote from Lord of the Rings but it is definitely a quote from my favorite end of the summer cocktail. With the end of summer, comes the beginning of fall and all things apple cider. And if you like apple cider you just might fancy our Apple Cider Margarita. I mean there’s tequila, lime juice, a salted rim, and of course, made with lots of apple cider.
Four ounces! Yes! That’s a lot of tequila but only because I am making enough for two servings and since the Mrs. doesn’t drink more for me, right?
I have a secret weapon when it comes to making these delicious cocktails and it’s Grand Marnier Liqueur. It adds a subtle orange citrus flavor which compliments the apple cider superbly!
I love apple cider, don’t you? And did you know it makes a really good margarita too? Pick up your favorite seasonal apple cider and put on your mixology cap and shake things up a bit!
Guess what? Our Apple Cider Margarita goes perfectly with our Sweet Corn Pico de Gallo (coming soon)! It’s like it was meant to be!
