Jose Appleseed

A great fall and winter cocktail if you are jonesing for a margarita but trying to be seasonally appropriate.

  • 1 shot gold tequila
  • 2 shots Smirnoff Kissed Caramel Vodka
  • 3 shots fresh apple cider
  • For the rim:  1 Tbs. sugar mixed with 1/8 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg and a little more apple cider.


  1. Chill a martini glass
  2. Fill a shaker with ice
  3. Add the first three ingredients (notice the quantity is 1, 2, 3  – easy to remember just make sure the apple cider is the last one)
  4. Shake until well chilled
  5. In a small plate, combine the sugar and spices. Pour a little extra apple cider in another small plate and coat the rim of the glass with it and then dip it in the sugar and spices mixture.
  6. Pour in the chilled cocktail and enjoy!
