Sipping Paradise: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett with the 'Margaritaville Cider'

In a world of tropical tunes, sun-soaked days, and easy living, few have captured the essence of an island-inspired lifestyle like the legendary Jimmy Buffett. With a guitar in hand and a margarita in reach, he transported us to the shores of Margaritaville and the vibrant world of endless summer.

In honor of Jimmy's music, his carefree spirit, and the timeless melodies that have become the soundtrack of our lives, we've concocted the 'Margaritaville Cider.' This Apple Cider Margarita embodies the same zest for life and celebration that Jimmy's music has brought to countless beach parties, boat cruises, and backyard barbecues.

So, let's raise our glasses to the man who taught us to embrace the sunshine, find joy in simplicity, and savor the moments that truly matter. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, and with this refreshing cocktail, we're celebrating the enduring legacy of Jimmy Buffett—one margarita at a time."

An Apple Cider Margarita is a delightful autumn twist on the classic margarita, combining the flavors of apple cider and tequila. Here's a simple recipe for you to enjoy:


  • 2 oz silver tequila

  • 1 oz triple sec (orange liqueur)

  • 2 oz fresh apple cider

  • 1 oz fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup (adjust to taste, depending on the sweetness of the cider)

  • Ice cubes

  • Apple slices and lime wedges for garnish (optional)

  • Cinnamon sugar for rimming the glass (optional)


  1. Prepare the Glass (Optional): If you'd like, you can rim the glass with cinnamon sugar. To do this, rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip it into a plate of cinnamon sugar to coat the rim.

  2. Shake Ingredients: In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, triple sec, apple cider, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add ice cubes to fill the shaker halfway.

  3. Shake Vigorously: Close the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This will chill and mix the ingredients well.

  4. Strain and Serve: Strain the mixture into a glass filled with ice cubes. You can use a rocks glass or a margarita glass, depending on your preference.

  5. Garnish: Garnish with a slice of apple and a lime wedge, if desired.

  6. Enjoy: Sip and enjoy your refreshing Apple Cider Margarita!

Feel free to adjust the amount of simple syrup to your taste. If your apple cider is very sweet, you may need less syrup, while less sweet cider may benefit from a bit more sweetness. This drink captures the cozy flavors of fall and is perfect for seasonal gatherings.
