Make this boozy Apple Spice Margarita your next favorite fall cocktail!

Nothing upgrades a party like a BOO-zy addition.

A traditional margarita is always a crowd pleaser, but this season we’re stepping it up by adding in a fall staple: Apple Cider!

Here’s our recipe for an Apple Spice Margarita: 


  • 1/2 ounce triple sec or orange liquior
  • 2 ounces silver tequila (or mezcal if you want a more smoky flavor)
  • 5 ounces of apple cider
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • cinnamon sugar
  • cinnamon sticks
  • apple slices


  1. Start by rimming your glass with the cinnamon sugar. Either use a pre-made Cinnamon Sugar spice or combine the cinnamon and sugar on a plate. Use a lime slice to moisten the rim of the glass, then immediately dip into the plate of cinnamon sugar.
  2. The combine first 5 ingredients (triple sec, tequila, apple cider, lime juice and maple syrup) in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to combine.
  3. Strain into glass and stir with cinnamon sticks.
  4. Sprinkle apple slice with cinnamon sugar, and use slice and cinnamon stick to garnish.

(This recipe makes one glass)

If you’re interested in making an entire pitcher for a party here’s how to adjust your ingredients:

  • 12 ounces of triple sec or orange liquor
  • 25 ounces of silver tequila (entire fifth bottle)
  • 6.5 cups of apple cider
  • 6 teaspoons maple sugar

(This pitcher will make around 13 drinks)

To make it a mocktail: 

  • Easy! Just omit the triple sec & tequila and add another 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup.
