This Best Apple Cider Margarita with a cinnamon and sugar rim is the perfect cocktail to enjoy this fall. Hints of orange from Triple Sec paired with the sweetness of apple cider pair perfectly with the citrus of fresh lime juice and tequila. Make it in a pitcher for entertaining or enjoy a single serving.
The arrival of apple cider at the local markets is always an exciting time. It signifies the arrival of fall and time for all the greatest apple and pumpkin recipes. If I’m not sipping on one of these, I’m probably having a Spiked Pumpkin Latte or Pumpkin Pie Martini. A Crockpot full of creamy, dreamy Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate is perfect for the kids. There is just something so comforting about these great flavors!
This recipe is easily made with your favorite gold tequila, apple cider, fresh lime juice, a splash of triple sec and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can never go wrong with apples and oranges! Impress your guests with a cinnamon sugar rim, cinnamon stick and a fresh apple slice. Make a large batch of these in a pitcher for easy entertaining.
A good rim job is simply achieved by running a fresh lime around the rim of your glass before dipping onto a plate of cinnamon mixed with sugar. You can use regular sugar or Organic Cane Sugar with large crystals if available. You can also, dip your rim in a bit of honey for extra sweetness before coating with sugar.
