Around here summer is in full swing! I’m pretty sure I’ve almost wore out a pair of flip flops already. For me, summer isn’t complete without an amazing margarita recipe and I’ve been crazing a good one for weeks!

I found this new Light Cider from Michelob Ultra and thought it would be the perfect addition to an amazing margarita! I love a hard cider and this one is so good on it’s own – crisp, light and refreshing. I love it straight out of the bottle, but being that it’s naturally sweetened and made from hand-picked apples I thought it would perfect to mix in with a traditional margarita.

With a few other special ingredients I created Light Cider Apple Margaritas!

Here’s what you’ll need to make my twist on this classic summer drink…

Two Bottles of Michelob Ultra Light Cider
1/2 cup Tequila
1 can Frozen Limeade Concentrate (thawed)
1/3 cup Apple Pucker (apple schnapps)
Kosher Salt

Begin by rubbing a wedge of lime onto a margarita glass. Then, dip rims in salt to coat lightly.

I love the twist of apple in this margarita from the apple pucker and cider. I also love that fact the Michelob Ultra Light Cider has one-third fewer calories than traditional ciders.

Well, I’m off to my porch for some margarita sipping. I have a few extra glasses and four more bottles of cider if you want to come and join me!

    Those margaritas sound great, I have tried the Ultra cider too and agree it is crisp & refreshing, not too sweet which I like, I wish it was lower carbs though. But OK for once in a while!
