I was looking for some fun cocktails to kick off our Thanksgiving meal (isn’t cooking more fun with a cocktail!?)… and came across quite the line-up of fun libations.  BUT tequila? In a autumn cocktail?  I was intrigued and had to try it… I introduce to you… the Manzarita (“manzana” is apple in Spanish).

Apple Tequila


  • 2 oz blanco tequila
  • 3/4 oz elderflower liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz apple juice or cider
  • 1/2 lemon, quartered
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  1. Muddle lemon and cinnamon in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice, tequila, elderflower liqueur, and apple juice and shake well.
  3. Strain into an ice filled glass and top with a dash of cinnamon.

I was blown away with how much I enjoyed this… and a little tequila never hurt anyone at a family gathering (some of you may welcome it more than others 🙂 ). Cheers!
