Meg + Matcha
The perfect Fall cocktail made with fresh apple cider and a cinnamon sugar rim.
Cinnamon, sugar, coarse salt, gin, orange liqueur, apple cider, lime juice, and maple syrup.
Mix together sugar with cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and place it upside down in sugar mixture. Twist so the sugar sticks to the rim.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Then, add the gin, orange liqueur, lime juice, apple cider, and maple syrup.
Close the cocktail shaker and shake well for 30 seconds to combine the flavors. The shaker will feel super cold.
Fill your glass ¾ of the way with ice. Gently drop the ice in so the cinnamon sugar doesn't get knocked off the rim. Then, strain or pour in the margarita.
Garnish the cocktail with a thin apple slice, lime wheel, rosemary sprig, star anise, and cinnamon stick. Light the cinnamon stick on fire (carefully!) for a smoky effect if desired.
