Green Apple Margarita: The Sour Mix
Mix all ingredients together in a shaker. Add all ingredients to a rock glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of Granny Smith apple.
This is an alternative to the usual margarita that incorporates the sweet and especially tart flavor of Granny Smith apple. This variant is one of the most acidic ones that can be found, providing a completely different flavor to our green apple margarita mix.
To prepare it, we won’t use apple sodas with artificial flavors or liquors, just pure apple juice. We want the cocktail to be as intense as possible, but with a balance between the ingredients.
