So let’s celebrate with a margarita. Sounds good to me! Since ‘tis the season for apple cider, I’m thinking that using apple cider for margaritas is the way to go. These were awesome – they were warm yet cold, earthy yet spikey, and perfect for the fall and the holidays.

I highly recommend finding the gold tequila for these (not that gold tequila is hard to find). While silver tequila is more common, the warmth and richness of the gold tequila is perfect for this autumn drink. If all you’ve got is silver though, it would probably work just fine.
