Caramel apple pie collides with a margarita for the perfect fall cocktail

Here’s the perfect margarita for autumn — or anytime, for that matter. It’s a little sweet, a little salty and a lot delectable. The only thing is, I don’t think it would be as good served à la mode, so no ice cream in this margarita.

I especially like the sweet and salty flavors going on in this tasty morsel of a drink.

I serve this margarita with a straw because some of the caramel is at the bottom, which is a special treat. But then again, if you like salt, the rim of the glass is full of it along with caramel.

For an extra-special indulgence this season, give this caramel apple pie-margarita collision a try.

Caramel apple pie margarita recipe

Serves 2

Total time: 10 minutes


  • 1/3 cup (4 ounces) tequila
  • 1/4 cup canned light apple pie filling
  • 1/4 cup soft and light caramel ice cream topping (for the margarita)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into large pieces
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup soft and light caramel ice cream topping (for rimming the glasses)
  • Margarita salt (for rimming the glasses)
  • 3 apple slices, cut in half (for garnish)
  • 1 tablespoon soft and light caramel ice cream topping (for garnish)
  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. To a small bowl, add the lime juice and the apple pieces. Mix until all sides of the apple are covered so that they won’t turn brown. Set aside.
  2. To rim the glasses, to a small- to medium-size bowl, add the caramel topping, and dip the rims of the glasses into it. Then dip the rims of the glasses into the margarita salt. Set aside.
  3. To a blender, add the tequila, pie filling, caramel topping, apple pieces and ice.
  4. Blend on the smoothie setting.
  5. Pour in the caramel- and salt-rimmed glasses, and garnish with apple slices and caramel topping.
