Ingredients

Scale

Smoky Apple Cider Margarita Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces mezcal
  • 2 ounces apple cider, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • optional sweetener: maple syrup or agave nectar, to taste*
  • ice
  • optional garnishes: diced apples and a cinnamon stick

Sweet Ginger Salt Rim Garnish:

  • 1 tablespoon coarse Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 lime

Instructions

To Make The Smoky Apple Cider Margarita:

  1. Begin by salting the rims of your glasses, if you would like.  (See instructions below.)
  2. Add mezcal, apple cider, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker, and shake or stir until combined.  Taste, and if you would like the mixture to be sweeter, stir in a half teaspoon of maple syrup or agave nectar at a time, until the mix reaches your desired level of sweetness.
  3. Fill glass with ice.  Pour in the margarita mixture over the rocks.  Serve immediately, garnished with diced apples and a cinnamon stick, if desired.

To Make The Sweet Ginger Salt Rim Garnish:

  1. Whisk together the salt, sugar and ground ginger in a shallow bowl until combined.  Run a slice of lime (the juicy part!) around the top edge of your glass, then dip it in the ginger mixture.
