Margarita of the Month: November 2014 – Apple Margarita
November 6, 2014
With lots of apple varieties on sale and in season at the market, it got me to thinking… and of course Dedicated Readers will assume my thoughts went to how to use them in a margarita… and they would be correct!
And it’s been a while since I’ve given you a Margarita of the Month (maybe I should change it to Margarita of the Season?), so lets dive right in!
1/2 Cup Apple Juice (if you have a juicer, making your own fresh juice would be ideal!)
4 Tbl Silver Tequila
3 Tbl Lime Juice (fresh squeezed)
2 Tbl Triple Sec
1 Tbl Agave Syrup (or Simple Syrup)
Salt for rim of glass if desired
Slice of Apple for garnish if desired
Moisten the rim of the glass with a piece of lime and salt the rim – set aside.
Throw everything (except the garnish of course) into your cocktail shaker and add a big handful of ice… shake ‘er up good until the outside of the shaker gets frosty.
Strain into the prepared glass (on the rocks or neat – your call) and garnish with a slice of apple…
then drink up!
This makes two pretty stiff drinks (or one for me…), and since it has all that apple, it’s gotta be a healthy drink! Right???
Give it a try, share your thoughts, you know the drill…
Back to the bar, and the kitchen! See you soon!
