THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Apple Cider Margaritas

It's the Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in Canada and since it happens to be one of our favourite holidays (turkey, cranberries, a little pumpkin pie, three whole days to eat and lay around 'digesting', you can't ask for better!) we are packing it up a little early this afternoon to get the festivities rolling.
(Even though we will be technically unplugged for the rest of the weekend, never fear lovely readers who have entered our Shoe Journals/Sole Society giveaway, we will be posting the winners tomorrow morning. If you haven't had a chance to enter, it's not too late, giveaway closes tonight at midnight so click here to be taken to our giveaway page and your chance to win your fav pair of shoes + an accessory from Sole Society's latest fall line!)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Margaritas aren't the usual October fare for us but since the weatherman is calling for blue skies and above seasonal temperatures, we thought this Apple Cider Margarita would be the perfect drink to mix the sunshine and Thanksgiving autumn vibe!


1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
apple slices and cinnamon sticks for garnish
cinnamon and coarse sugar for glass rimming

Mix a few spoonfuls of coarse sugar and cinnamon in a small plate. Wet rim of glass and then press glass rim into the cinnamon/sugar mixture on the plate. Fill glass with ice, then add the Grand Marnier, tequila and apple cider. Stir to mix well and garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
