Apple Cider Margarita is the perfect fall margarita with the tequila, orange liquor, apple cider, and lime juice shaken together for an amazing fall cocktail. This drink was so easy to make and with the gallon of apple cider, I was able to make a couple of other fall cocktails. If you are looking for a new use of apple cider for cocktails this fall, look no further.
While this can also be a frozen apple cider margarita, I keep my tequila, Cointreau, and apple cider chilled and served with nugget ice for the perfect cold apple cider margaritas. The ingredients can be poured into a blender with the ice to make it frozen too.
Apple Cider Margarita Ingredients
To make these margaritas, you need the same core ingredients like all my margaritas.
- Silver Tequila - I used Milagro in this margarita
- Orange Liquor - Cointreau is my top shelf go-to but triple sec works just fine too
- Apple Cider - Not juice, the 100% cider
- Limes - For lime juice and garnish
- Ice - Nugget ice...
