Our Gingerbread Spice Margarita recipe is the drink to make when you want to spice up your fall dinners or host a Christmas party. This holiday cocktail mixes the classic flavors of your standard summer margarita – but with the fun winter twists of apple cider and cinnamon rim sugar. We prefer organic apple cider in this drink recipe, but you can also opt for apple juice or apple-cranberry juice instead.
