Margarita lovers, rejoice! The Shamrockarita has arrived. Backed with tequila and lime, then spiked with sour apple liqueur, this festive take on the classic cocktail will add the perfect flair to your St. Patrick’s Day party.
A classic margarita is typically made with 3 parts tequila, 2 parts triple sec, and 1 part lime juice. Here we’re swapping out part of the triple sec for sour apple liqueur, which brings a refreshingly tart note to the cocktail, as well as that gorgeous green tint.
Every festive cocktail needs a fun garnish, and these shamrock-shaped apple slices add the perfect touch. They’re super-easy to make—just cut 1/4″-round slices of Granny Smith apple and use a 2″ shamrock cookie cutter to stamp out the shapes—but if you want to simplify, a plain half-moon apple slice will also work.
