Apple Cider Margaritas

These margaritas are a fun twist on a classic and are perfect for Fall.Apple Cider Margaritas | A Nerd Cooks

It’s the first day of Fall, you guys!  Let’s celebrate with some sweet and herb-y margaritas.

Something that I didn’t realize until relatively recently: I actually really like tequila.  Ask friends who have tried my margaritas.  They will tell you that I really love it; I make them suuuper strong.

Until I had seen the recipe for Rosemary Mezcal Apple Cider, it didn’t occur to me that tequila would play nicely with apple cider.  But it really does!

This cocktail was inspired by the recipe on the blog Kale & Caramel.

You’ll need (makes 2 cocktails):

  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, divided
  • ice, for shaker
  • 4 oz tequila
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 tbs agave nectar
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • ice, for glasses

Remove the leaves from 1 sprig of rosemary and add it to the bottom of the cocktail shaker.  Add the remaining ingredients, minus the other two sprigs of rosemary.

Shake vigorously for 15 seconds.  Pour over ice and garnish with remaining rosemary.
