How to Make this Enchanting Poison Apple Margarita
Margaritas are easy and fun to make. Simply combine tequila with liqueur (in this case, sour apple schnapps) plus fresh-squeezed lime juice and sweetener. I use agave syrup, but if you like to use simple syrup feel free to do so.
It's even more fun to “decorate” the margarita. I used black salt to rim the glass to give it a suitably creepy look.
And of course, edible glitter.
The glitter deepens the color of the margarita to a very strong green, plus adds a little magical sparkle to the cocktail. It makes it look a little bit mysterious and a whole lot of fun!
Serve this cocktail at your next Halloween gathering! The sparkling glitter will mesmerize your guests as they gaze into the glass!
Of course not! Without the glitter your cocktail will have a very pale greenish hue from the sour apple schnapps. Which is perfectly acceptable. The glitter makes the deep green color and, of course, the sparkles. 😁
Certainly! While I’ve never tried it, I think a little cinnamon flavor would be a great match with the sour apple. Yum!
