Apple Cider Margarita Ingredients

Easy Apple Cider Margarita

A classic margarita contains tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur.For this fall- inspired cocktail, we are using apple cider and apple slices to make it extra special. 

  • Tequila Blanco
  • Apple cider
  • 1 apple; sliced for garnish
  • Ice

As far as special equipment goes, you will need a blender for this recipe. Personally, I use the Margaritaville mixer because it allows me to make 3 drinks at one time. If you don’t have one, any blender that can crush ice will work great!

Apple Cider Margarita Recipe

Add about 2 cups of ice to the blender. Pour in apple cider and two ounces of tequila. Blend well.

How To Garnish Your Margarita

My favorite way to dress this fall margarita is with a simple slice of apple.  If you want to go the extra step, you can dip the rim of your glass in caramel or add a stick of cinnamon.

Recipe Variations 

Spiced Apple Cider Margarita

If you want to make a spiced apple cider margarita, you can use spiced apple cider or add some spices to your regular apple cider. Cloves, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg will give your cocktail a delicious spicy taste. 

Caramel Apple Cider Margarita

To make this cocktail until a sweet treat, you will want to get some dipping caramel (you can find it in the fruit and veggie aisle at the grocery store). Simply dip the rim of your glass into the caramel before pouring your margarita.

Easy Apple Cider Margarita: FAQS

Easy Apple Cider Margarita

Can I make this margarita ahead of time?

Yes! You can definitely make this drink ahead.  The apple cider margarita will last up to 12 hours in the fridge.

Do I have to use Tequila Blanco?

No, I prefer Tequila Blanco because it is a clear spirit that doesn’t have any oak barrel aging.

This gives it a clean, smooth flavor that is perfect for cocktails.

If you do not have Tequila Blanco, feel free to use another type of tequila such as Reposado or Anejo. These types of tequila are aged in oak barrels, which will give your drink a different flavor profile.

Can I make this margarita for a crowd? 

You can definitely make this cocktail for as many people as you wish by doubling or tripling the recipe. If you have a blender, you can add all the ingredients into it then just pour into glasses afterwards.
