Seasonal Sipper: The Apple Cider Margarita You Have to Try
We're obsessing over this apple cider margarita. Thanks to a sweet mix of tequila and fresh apple cider, this drink is part summer, part fall and all sorts of perfect.
What You'll Need:
- Grand Marnier
- Gold Tequila (we used the 1800 brand)
- Apple cider
- Orange juice
- Ground cinnamon (plus a few cinnamon sticks as a garnish)
- Pure cane sugar
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Sliced oranges and apples
Step 1: Pour out one shot each of both Grand Marnier and tequila, and add to a cocktail shaker.
Step 2: Add a half a cup of cider and a splash of orange juice to the mix. Not a big fan of OJ? It's okay to take it out completely -- just don't forget the cider!
Step 3: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and shake to combine.
Step 4: Before pouring, run an orange wedge around the rim of a glass and dip into a cinnamon-sugar mixture to give your marg a super-sweet rim. (One tablespoon each of both sugar and cinnamon should do.)
Step 5: Pour your apple cider margarita over ice and garnish with either an apple or orange wedge. Add a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and serve. Cheers!
