An apple margarita is the perfect early autumn cocktail. Celebrate the approach of the season of the witch with this sweet, tart tequila cocktail. Cheers to all things awesome.
Here's yet another reason why I love witches. Literally the day after Lughnasadh, which is August 1st, I started seeing memes on Instagram about Mabon, which is the first day of autumn. I'm sure there are some summer witches out there, but for the most part, we can't wait to get into the Earth's crone phase. We want our spices and pumpkins and coziness just as much as the next basic witch.
We've had a surprising late summer heat wave here in Scotland, which basically means it's been in the mid to high 70s fahrenheit and everyone is dying. Now that it's September, I've got my eyes peeled for the first hint of fiery color in the trees. And yes, I will probably be taking myself to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice chai. It makes he happy.
What makes an Apple Margarita so awesome?
I think of a margarita as a summer drink, but apple and cinnamon are definitely fall flavors, so this Apple Margarita is the perfect September cocktail. It's a little bit sweeter with less of a tart bite. I used cloudy apple juice here, but you could use apple cider (as we know it in America) or whatever apple juice you can get your hands on.
If you want to reveal the apple's hidden pentagram, be sure to turn it on its side to slide it rather than going from top to bottom. Pop the seeds out, add a cinnamon stick for stirring, and add some cinnamon sugar to the rim. Instant witchy vibes.
Magickal properties of apples
Apples have a rich association with mythology and folklore. From Adam and Eve to Snow White, they feature prominently in our stories. Apples are also associated with the afterlife and fairies. They also contain a hidden pentagram which provides protection and strongly ties them to witchcraft. Because they grow so readily, they're often linked to abundance, love, longevity, creativity and fertility. (Source The Modern Guide to Witchcraft by Skye Alexander)
