Cider and Pomegranate Margarita

Swap ready-for-fall pomegranate juice and apple cider in place of the usual tropical juices for this margarita, which has your favorite tequila flavors with an autumnal finish. This apple cider cocktail is chilled, so it’s perfect for drinking in areas that have warm-weather year-round: You’ll still have a refreshing drink, just with a decidedly fall feel.
