Apple Cider Margarita

Apple Cider Margarita

It's porch season which means that my hubs and I like to have a cocktail on the back porch in the evenings. The weather is finally cooling down to where it's actually relaxing to be outside in the evening and there's nothing like sipping on a delicious beverage after a long day of momming! 

This Apple Cider Margarita recipe from Half Baked Harvest is so. good. It has some of the great flavors of the classic marg we all know and love but with a delicious Fall twist - apple cider. This will definitely be a new go-to for us!
