Baked Apple Margarita, my favorite quick and easy, but oh so warming Michigan winter margarita. Silver tequila mixed with orange juice, baked apple cider, a touch of citrusy lime, and sweet maple syrup. This winter harvest margarita is a cozy take on the classic, and the perfect warming winter cocktail to sip on with friends and family. Finish this smoky margarita off with fresh rosemary, apple slices, and a smoking cinnamon stick for that extra special touch.

This baked apple margarita is perfectly balanced between sweetness and tartness with freshly squeezed lime juice, apple juice, maple syrup and just a touch of cinnamon to get all the winter flavors into one apple cocktail.
