Spicy Apple Cider Margarita

apple-cider-margarita-1

Every Thanksgiving we get together with a large group of friends and family.  Everyone brings their best dish to share, and our friend, Brian spends the day perfecting the turkey.  It always adds to the festivities to have special cocktail to kick the day off.

It’s become a tradition to play football or whiffle ball with the kids in the morning, come in for hor d’oeuvres, followed by a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner.  We end with a spirited group game of charades, Heads’Up™, or Catch Phrase™.
