Easy Sour Apple Margarita
Those who love margaritas are always on the lookout for delicious variations of their favorite cocktail. And, as a self-described diehard margarita lover, I can’t seem to get enough of the slightly sweet tequila and lime-infused concoction with the salt rim.
Our Sour Apple Margarita is one you’ll want in your warm-weather line-up. It has the familiar tequila and lime flavors, but it also has a bright shot of sour apple liqueur.
A perfect cocktail is a balancing act of bitter and sweet, here’s what we have going on with this sour apple margarita, the tequila and fresh lime juice provide the bitter and acidic, while the triple sec and sour apple liqueur supply the sweet. Put all of these ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake it up, during the shaking process the ice melts and provides enough water to bring all of the components into a harmonious balance. Even the salt on the rim of the glass is crucial to the personality of the margarita cocktail and adds texture to the drinking experience.
What You Will Need To Make This Cocktail
Tequila. It’s not a margarita if there isn’t any tequila and this cocktail has two ounces of the elixir made from the blue agave succulent. For this recipe, I used Blanco tequila for this cocktail recipe, it’s clean, crisp, and light, it is right on time.
Lime Juice. Fresh lime juice and tequila are a potent combination; it’s a destiny of flavors that give a proper margarita part of its balance and unique taste.
Triple Sec. This ingredient gives a margarita a bit of sweetness to offset the sour of the lime and astringency of the tequila. If you don’t have triple sec, that’s okay; you can use simple syrup, and if you want to take it to the next level, add a bit of Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
Sour Apple Syrup. Here’s where things get interesting as far as margaritas are concerned, it’s also a testament of the versatility and fluidity of what a cocktail can be. The infusion of the sour apple syrup is as whimsical as it stark and luscious. The sour apple syrup is the missing piece of the puzzle, and after one sip, you’ll understand why.
Ice & Salt. Ice and salt are just as crucial to any good margarita as the tequila and fresh lime juice. Use whatever ice you have on hand; as long as the ice is cold, you’ll be in good shape. The salt, on the other hand, well, don’t use table salt. Buy margarita salt or at least coarse or flaky sea salt.
