Oh yes, I went there. And I went one step further and published this with just enough time for you to get the ingredients for your weekend cocktail! This margarita came about last Friday when I found myself in need of one, but with not enough limes to do the job; I only had 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice, to be exact.
Cut to me eyeing my newly purchased jug of local apple cider. A plot was hatched. Why couldn't I take the autumnal bliss that is cider and marry it with my traditional Friday night margarita? I did just that and was rewarded with a wonderfully smokey (from the tequila), tangy (from the lime and cider) sweet (from the apples and triple sec) concoction. I'm addicted. But there's only one way to see if you will be too--try it out!
1.5 oz tequila
1/2 oz triple sec (optional)
3 oz fresh apple cider
1/2 oz lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a glass and stir until combined. Serves one. Drink immediately. Better yet, double the recipe and invite a friend over to enjoy this blissful fall cocktail on your porch!
