Sometimes things just come together. This is one of those things.

We were out at a party the other night and a friend whipped up some cider cocktails. It was the perfect splash of fall in one of my favorite libations. The idea was so simple and perfect I knew I’d be recreating it at home.

Sure enough, I had to take the idea and play with it in my own kitchen.

I started with my newest fall obsession. Athol Cider Syrup.

Visit Idaho last summer, we stopped by this amazing antique apple farm and I was absolutely inspired by their operation. The idea is to bring heritage apple breeds back to life, raise a healthy orchard, and produce top quality products. Education and farming. Well, I’m sold.

But the icing on the cake was that their Cider Syrup is downright addictive. It’s thick and smooth and packs just the right balance of apple flavor. I smuggled a precious bottle back home and have been limiting my use as if I live in a dystopian future and it’s the last cider syrup I could ever possibly own. (That kind of good).

A swirl of the cider syrup in the glass was the start.

Ice.

Then replacing the tequila with smoky mezcal.

And a simple classic margarita base.

With a splash of high-quality cider on top.

Then, the salt.

I wanted something sweet and savory to round out this experience so I mixed my cocktail salt with brown sugar, paprika, and a touch of cinnamon.
