Ginger Tequila Cider


I've found that some of the best cocktails I've made are the ones that I just kind of made up as I went along. For this week, I definitely improvised a bit, using items that we had in the studio and seasonal ingredients!


Introducing... the Ginger Tequila Cider.


Here's what you need: -silver tequila -ginger ale -apple cider -fresh apples -fresh lemons -fresh mint -ice

Here's what to do: 1) Add ice to each cocktail glass.  On top of ice, squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon into each glass.


2) Into each glass on top of ice & lemon juice, pour in 1 oz. tequila and 3 oz. of apple cider. 3) Top with ginger ale to fill the glass.  Stir gently with a straw to combine ingredients.


4) Garnish with fresh mint and apples.  We found these adorable mini apples that I used to garnish the rim of each glass, but you can also use slices from a normal size apple.


This cocktail combines 3 of my favorite things... apple cider, tequila and ginger ale, and the apple and ginger flavors definitely got me in the mood for fall.


Until next week... Cheers!
