So about this Manzarita, apple margarita business (“manzana” is apple in Spanish…see what we did there?!). Yes, it’s as good as it sounds.  And yes, it will be your new cold weather cocktail.  And yes, it’s the ideal, SUPER EASY, adult beverage for your upcoming Halloween party this weekend…forget the food coloring and dry ice this year.

If you’re still not convinced let me just paint the picture for this cocktail: a fine (oh so fine) pairing of smooth, belly-warming tequila (I love Casamigos) and crisp apple juice, a hint of agave to sweeten, a squeeze of lime juice for bite, and a sprinkle of cinnamon for warmth.  Amazing, right?! 

I first discovered a rendition of the Manzarita on Food & Wine, and since then it’s been all I can think about.  The Manzarita is incredibly simple to make as you’ll see from the recipe below, and this play on an apple margarita is my new favorite excuse to dust off the tequila bottle that’s usually left sad and lonley during this time of year. So tell me friends, will you be pouring yourself a Manzarita this weekend?  Truly, MKR
