Smoked Apple Cider Margarita

Table of Contents

Who loves sitting down on a warm summer night with a margarita and a basket of chips and queso? Those are some of the most tasty treats an adult could ever ask for! However, Margaritas aren’t just for summertime anymore! You can enjoy the flavors of fall and your favorite summertime beverage.

Enjoy a delicious new pairing that will give your tongue the fall flavors they are asking for! This Apple Cider Margarita takes the citrus flavors of summer and mixing them with the spices of fall. Imagine climbing the mountains to your favorite fall spot and enjoying a hot Apple Cider donut with fresh apple cider. Now, purchase a jug of apple cider to take home, add some tequila, and BOOM! You’ve got a perfect fall drink.

When I first heard of pumpkin spice or apple cider margaritas, I was completely thrown off. I was imagining the flavors of my pumpkin spice coffee mixed with alcohol and I couldn’t imagine how that would taste. Well, I tried one and was instantly surprised with how delicious it was! Add a cinnamon sugar rim to it and it was just perfect!

The Cinnamon Smoke Dust pairs so perfectly with the tarte flavors of the citrus in this margarita. Give it a try this weekend!
