Pink Lady Apple Margarita
Recipe type: cocktail
For the pink lady apple juice:
2 pink lady apples
½ cup water
For the cinnamon-sugar rim:
3 tsp sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
For the cocktail:
1¾ oz tequila
¾ oz triple sec
½ oz lemon juice (from about ½ a lemon)
2 oz fresh pink lady apple juice
To make the pink lady apple juice:
Chop the apples into slices and place them in the blender. Discard the cores. (No need to peel them.) Add the water.
Blend on high, scraping down your blender once or twice, until the mixture is smooth.
Using a fine mesh strainer, strain all of the juice into a separate container and discard the pulp. You should end up with about 1⅔ cup juice.
Store the fresh juice in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
To make the rimming sugar:
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place a little bit on a small plate or shallow bowl. Spread it out so that you can fit the mouth of your cup over it. Set aside until you're ready to make your cocktail.
To make the cocktail:
Prep your glass. Rub the rim of your cup with a lemon wedge to get it wet, just at the top. Place it upside-down on your plate with the rimming sugar. Tap it around until you coat the rim of the glass with the sugar. Fill the glass with ice and set aside.
Add all ingredients (tequila, triple sec, lemon juice and apple juice) to a cocktail shaker with ice. Put on the lid and shake vigorously for 30 seconds or so until it feels cool to the touch on the outside. Strain the cocktail into your prepared glass. Enjoy!
If you have an actual juicer you could use that instead of my blender method. However, you might want to use less apple juice in your cocktail since it will be more concentrated.
