Autumn Margarita

In my humble opinion, it’s always the right season for a margarita. So I was excited to try this fall twist on one of my favourite cocktails. It uses apple butter in place of Cointreau, and lemon juice instead of lime, but there’s no mistaking its margarita-ness. Plus, the cinnamon-salt rim is suitably seasonal and delivers an apple pie quality to the drink. #omnomnom

Apple butter is a lovely addition to this twist on a margarita.
