A splash of crisp, sweet, spritzy hard cider can transform almost any cocktail into a fall classic—even the ultimate summertime sipper, the Frozen Margarita. This autumnally influenced cocktail features DIY cinnamon-infused tequila—Fireball’s south-of-the-border cousin—which mixes seamlessly with semi-sweet cider. Throw in a cinnamon-sugar rim, and you have the cocktail equivalent of jumping into a pile of leaves.
- 2 oz cinnamon-infused tequila
- .75 oz lemon juice
- .5 oz Cointreau
- .5 oz simple syrup
- .5 Cup crushed ice
- 1 bottle hard cider
- cinnamon sugar
Rim a large Margarita goblet with simple syrup and cinnamon sugar.
Combine all other ingredients except for the cider in a blender, blend until smooth and pour into the glass. If your glass is the right size, you should still have room for the beer.
Holding your thumb over the opening of the bottle of cider, quickly overturn the bottle into the glass, removing your thumb just before submerging it into the glass.
Drink with a straw, ideally with a friend.
