Y’all didn’t think I would let fall get by without another festive seasonal cocktail, did you?
These Apple Cider Margaritas are so delicious and fun for cooler weather. They are great for serving at fall tailgate parties or sipping on a date night in with your significant other.
Of course, just like any dish, a cocktail is only as god as the ingredients you start with, so make them count! For these Apple Cider Margaritas, I start with my traditional margarita base – a good tequila and fresh lime juice. Then I add my favorite apple cider and a splash of ginger beer for just enough spice and a little fizz. Finished with a spiced cinnamon-salted rim, these margaritas are perfect for getting you into the fall spirit!
