Ingredients:

  • 2 oz (60 ml) tequila
  • 1 oz (30 ml) orange liqueur (such as triple sec or Grand Marnier)
  • 1 oz (30 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 oz (30 ml) apple cider
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) maple syrup
  • Ice
  • Cinnamon sugar (for rimming the glass)
  • Sliced apple and cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Begin by rimming your glass with cinnamon sugar. To do this, take a lime wedge and run it along the rim of the glass to wet it, then dip the rim into a plate of cinnamon sugar, coating it evenly.
  2. Fill the glass with ice to chill it while you prepare the cocktail.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, orange liqueur, freshly squeezed lime juice, apple cider, and maple syrup.
  4. Add ice to the shaker and then shake vigorously until well chilled.
  5. Strain the margarita mixture into your prepared, ice-filled glass.
  6. If desired, garnish your Fall Margarita with a slice of apple and a cinnamon stick.
  7. Serve and enjoy your seasonal Fall Margarita!
