Keeping Spirits Bright

One of the best parts about the holidays are all the festive cocktails! Because I would rather spend my caloric budget on a glass of wine than a plate of cookies, I love experimenting with different festive beverages to celebrate. The one below is one of the few we’ve attempted thus far. I found it originally on Pinterest via this blog.

The Apple Cider Margarita

Apple Cider
Tequila
Grand Marnier
Oranges and Apples
Cinnamon, Sugar and Cinnamon Sticks

We gathered all our materials and got to work.

My mom especially liked these because when she goes out for margaritas, she always asks for a sugar rim instead of salt.

Dan is an expert when it comes to the integration of fruit in beverages.

He also did a wonderful job creating a festive sugar rim.

The end result was very festive.

The drinks were very good. But the problem with these is that they are just too darn sweet! I could probably only have one of these before I’d have to move on to something a little less sugar-y.

Enjoy!
