How to make an apple cider margarita recipe. This easy recipe has hard cider and tequila for a delicious fall cocktail recipe. You can make it by the glass or in a pitcher for a crowd.

This hard cider margarita is an easy recipe that you can make by the glass or by the pitcher. I made a sparkling apple cider margarita, but you can use regular apple cider. The cinnamon sugar rim is delicious and complements the hard cider and tequila. It's optional, but it tastes really good!

You can use a sparkling apple cider or regular apple cider. Either way, you will need to use apple cider and not apple juice for the best flavor.

I like to look for a dark colored cider because it tends to have more flavor. The fresher the jug, the better it will taste. You can use apple cider straight from the jug or make this easy hot apple cider recipe.

You can easily make this hard cider and tequila by the cup or for a crowd. You can double the recipe or even quadruple it.

Here's what you need to make 8 servings:

  • 2 cups tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 2 cups sparkling cider or apple cider

I make an easy apple cider margarita and just pour it into a cup and stir. However, you can also make a shaken drink. You'll need to add about three cups of ice to ensure that it gets cold if you shake.
