- 2 oz (60 ml) tequila
- 1 oz (30 ml) orange liqueur (such as triple sec or Grand Marnier)

- 1 oz (30 ml) apple cider
- 1/2 oz (15 ml) maple syrup
- Cinnamon sugar (for rimming the glass)

- 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.
- Fill the glass with ice to chill it while you prepare the cocktail.
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, orange liqueur, freshly squeezed lime juice, apple cider, and maple syrup.
- Add ice to the shaker and then shake vigorously until well chilled.
- Strain the margarita mixture into your prepared, ice-filled glass.
- If desired, garnish your Fall Margarita with a slice of apple and a cinnamon stick.
- Serve and enjoy your seasonal Fall Margarita!
