Apple Cider Margarita

You know we love a good marg in the Dzafic house. Anel’s margarita recipe is a year-round hit. But I wanted to create a cocktail that’s perfect for serving on chilly fall nights and potentially even during apps on Thanksgiving.

This apple cider margarita checks all of my fall boxes: apple, maple syrup, cinnamon, delicious! If you want a smokier flavor use mezcal instead of tequila. I personally like a mix of tequila and mezcal but do whatever floats your boat.

Apple Cider Margarita
