Apple Cider Margaritas

Yield: serves 1, is easily multiplied

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
orange segments and apple slices
cinnamon + cane sugar + coarse sugar for glass rimming
cinnamon sticks for garnish

Directions:

Add a few spoonfuls of cane sugar, coarse sugar and cinnamon to a plate. Run an orange segment around the edge of the glass, then press into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat the rim. Add a few orange slices in the bottom of the glass, fill with ice, then add the Grand Marnier, tequila and apple cider and stir to mix. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Enjoy!

Note: As a rule, I generally prefer silver tequila in my margaritas, but the gold here really gives a “warmth” that matches the cider and cinnamon perfectly.

    I just happen to have a huge jug of TJs apple cider that I impulse purchased a couple days ago b/c I was into the seasonal spirit.

    Now, I can get on board with your kind of spirits.

    Sounds…phenomenal! And after one or two, I think gold or silver pretty much taste the same :)

    I may, I *may* have to try this despite after one rememberable/dear god unrememberable night I had way too much tequilla (don’t all college girls?), and vowed the next day, as I lay on the cold bathroom tile that morning, that I would never *ever* have it again.
    Which makes me ask you, can you really taste the tequilla in this? Or is it just spiked apple cider goodness?

      Gahhh… I’m probably not the best person to ask. I really LOVE the taste of tequila. I think if you add enough apple cider, you really won’t be able to taste it??

    We must have the same brain some days because I was looking up cider and apple ‘adult’ drinks the other day. Too funny. Love this! It’s so festive looking too which is a bonus.
