DOTW: Spiced Apple Margarita

Springtime. Time of confused weather. Time of cold one day, rainy the next, and then, hey! it’s a beautiful almost summer day. What to drink? A confused cocktail of course. Margaritas are an official summer drink (at least in my opinion), so let’s add some traditionally winter ingredients to confuse the heck out of us. And let’s make it yummy. Not a tall order, we can do it. Have great spring weekend!

What you’ll need:

Add all liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Rim a cocktail glass with cinnamon, or a cinnamon sugar mix. Add ice to the glass, then strain the contents of the shaker into the glass. Top off with ground cinnamon, and garnish with a slice of lime.


* to make honey syrup, combine 1/2 cup of honey with 1/2 cup of water in a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then simmer on low until you have a syrup-like consistency. Let it cool before using.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
