Apple Cider Margarita

Hard apple cider is at the heart of our festive, fall drink. Of course, there’s also tequila in our margarita because only a crazy person would make one without tequila. (Just kidding!)

This is a quick, easy, boozy drink looks so inviting. Right? Serving it in a glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar is a must! It’s that little extra something the delicious drink needs to stand out in a world full of showy cocktails.

Apple Picking Season

In autumn, there are lots of states across the United States that get very excited about apple picking time.

Apples picked on a crisp, clear, fall day are the some of sweetest things you’ll ever eat. They aren’t at all what you get in an ordinary grocery store. Oh no! If you’ve never had one fresh off the tree, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s like taking a bite right out of the (arguably) best season of the whole year.

Looking for an orchard near you? Every state is not so lucky as to have an apple-picking season. Whether you do, or you are open to driving to one, you’ll find a helpful list of great orchards here.

Simple Syrup

Never made it before? It’s so simple – thus the name. Make some, put it in a bottle and use it for lots of other drink recipes.

Mix a cup of regular, granulated sugar with one cup of water. Bring it to a boil until the sugar is dissolved. That’s it!
