  • Cocktail shaker
  • Shot glass
  • Cocktail glasses
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife
  • Flat plates


For the cocktail

  • 4 tsp honey
  • ¼ cup salt
  • 8 oz tequila
  • 4 oz triple sec
  • 8 oz apple cider
  • 8 oz club soda
  • ice

For garnish

  • cinnamon sticks
  • fresh sage or thyme
  • cranberries
  • apple slices


  • First, let's line the rims of our glasses with honey and salt. Pour honey and salt on two separate flat plates. Dip the rim of the glass in the honey. Then, immediately after, dip it in the salt. You can also use sugar if you'd like!
  • Fill the glasses with ice and set to the side.
  • Add tequila, triple sec, and apple cider into a cocktail shaker. Shake it up! Then, top with club soda. 
  • Pour cocktail in the glasses and garnish. It's up to you how seasonal you want to get! I used apple slices, cranberries, and fresh thyme.


If you need to store this Thanksgiving Margarita, refrigerate for up to 3 days. You will need to re-shake the cocktail prior to drinking to ensure that it’s mixed up.
Don't shake your club soda in your cocktail shaker. It will explode everywhere! Just pour it in after shaking or pour it in your glass at the end.
