This whimsical haunted cocktail is both spicy and warming. Perfect for cozy autumn nights and every holiday from Halloween, to Friendsgiving, to Thanksgiving. And then every other day in between.
Happy Saturday! I’m having so much fun with this year’s “spooky” cocktails. For each new drink, I’ve had a new inspiration behind the cocktail. This week’s cocktail is inspired by the magical Harry Potter series.
It’s Spooky, but whimsical at the same time – haunted, spicy, sweet, and simple.
I had plans to share another Halloween cocktail today, but this margarita just excited me way too much. It was one of those last-minute, eleventh-hour decisions that can often play out beautifully. And I couldn’t be happier I switched gears.
This one is quick, which we love.
Grab fresh apple cider, tequila, orange liquor, spiced pumpkin butter, and cinnamon sugar. Shake it all up to evenly mix in that pumpkin butter.
Pour the drink into your favorite cocktail glass and top off with ginger beer. The ginger beer is the real secret to this. To me, it’s what really makes this margarita feel a little more magical than all the rest.
If you want to make a mocktail? I’ve included those steps as well! Just use extra apple cider and a splash of fresh orange juice. Just as delish.
Other than that, this is a fun, simple tequila margarita made with the addition of pumpkin butter, cider, and fizzy ginger beer.
I’d recommend testing this out this weekend, then making a double batch for Halloween. And then go for it again on Thanksgiving, you won’t be disappointed!
Keeping this very short today in true Cocktail Saturday form. See you all tomorrow for another round of Sunday favorites!
