Sour Green Apple Margarita

Sour Green Apple Margarita

I have a strange amount of energy today, which I am going to attribute to the Vitamin B12 + B Complex shot I got on Tuesday night. Have you guys ever tried those out before? I know I told you about them last year- I was super run down and kind of sick and pretty desperate! I had one of these shots and I was like another person by the next day. I am having a similar reaction this time from the sour green apple margarita I just enjoyed.

I think that the only sensible thing to do on an energy filled Thursday is to have a big old Thursday Cocktail. Don’t you think?

And of all the drinks I have had lately- this one was a favorite.

My grocery store sells bottles of SOUR green apple juice which is amazingly like a granny smith apple in liquid form, and that is what inspired this drink. Combined with a jolt of sweet and spicy jalapeno syrup and fresh sour lime juice- it is a perfect fall cocktail.

We make ample amounts of Mexican food around here and I am for sure going to be whipping these up to go with it- I think they would be an awesome addition to your next fun happy hour or even for tailgating. Yes??
