Apple Cider Margaritas

Perfectly festive and tasty Apple Cider Margaritas to usher in Fall!

Apple Cider MargaritasSunday is the official first day of Fall..the weather here, cold at night, days are still hot & Sunny! Though we’ve been making it taste like Fall with the food and drinks, and smell like it with the Candles, the weather just isn’t quite there yet! In honor of ushering in Fall, not only do I have this fantastic Apple Cider Margarita for you, made by my hubs! But come back Sunday for an incredible giveaway that you are NOT going to want to miss! It’s a good one folks!

Apple Cider MargaritasMy husband is leaving pretty early this morning driving to Missouri…by himself. I’m in Maine for one more week with my kiddos while he gets himself settled. I’m going to miss him like crazy…being apart is super rare for us, so its definitely going to be an adjustment with all the approaching changes, but they’re all great, and I am so excited for him and for us!

With Fall a couple days away, and it being Friday and all..I ‘d say you definitely deserve this Apple Cider Margarita. I’m thinking we should all have a simultaneous virtual happy hour! I could use it, and I’m guessing so could you! 😉 Make this. It tastes just like you’d expect it too, but probably better! 😉

    I was looking for a hot rum cider recipe but I didn’t have any rum and this sounds way better anyway. Its end of December but 76′ out here in So. Calif – perfect weather for this drink, I think.

    God bless thanks
