My signature Caramel Apple Cider Margarita is a cold fall drink that will warm you up! The cinnamon sugar and apple cider flavors will make you feel like you are having Thanksgiving dinner with your family. I also love making this as a mocktail for my sons, just omit the tequila. Living next to so many great farmer’s markets, I love to shop for fresh seasonal produce and find ways bring their flavors to life in my holiday meals that are new and exciting. This one is a fun twist on having traditional apple cider.
Equal parts cinnamon and sugar
3 oz tequila (omit for mocktail)
2 oz lemon juice
3 oz apple cider
3 oz ginger beer
Apple slice dipped in caramel
In a shallow dish or small plate, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
Rub an apple wedge around the rims of 2 glasses and turn upside-down onto dish with sugar to coat the rims. Fill glasses with ice.
Add tequila, lemon juice and cider to a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into ice-filled glasses. Top drinks with ginger beer. Garnish with Carmel dipped apple slices.
