12 Days of Christmas Cocktails: Spiced Apple Margarita

On the eighth day of Christmas Cocktails, Everybody Loves Pretty gave to you, Spiced Apple Margarita, a cranberry martini, hot apple-cider floats, Chocolate Candy-Cane Martini, Spiced Cranberry Sangria, Spiked Coconut Chai Latte, Warm Mulled Wine, and a recipe for Rum and Eggnog.

I am a huge fan of tequila. It is definitely my drink of choice and can be mixed with many more things that I had originally thought! Having said that, naturally we needed to include a tequila-based drink when selecting Christmas cocktails. There are so many different Christmas flavors you could pair with tequila – think cranberry and pomegranate for instance! For this recipe I chose to use the classic winter flavour of apple to create a unique and delicious margarita. Who knew apple would go so well with tequila? It definitely does :)

Spiced Apple Margarita

Ingredients:

1 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
orange segments and apple slices
cinnamon sugar for glass rimming
cinnamon sticks for garnish

Directions:

Add a few spoonfuls of cane sugar, coarse sugar and cinnamon to a plate. Run an orange segment around the edge of the glass, then press into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat the rim. Fill glass with ice, then add the Cointreau, tequila and apple cider and stir to mix. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you
    can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

      We do get a fair bit of spam, however most of it is blocked by WordPress!
