Nostalgia Electrics: Stainless Steel Margarator Review!

My first thought upon opening the Stainless Steel Margarator was it's time to find a reason to celebrate! It's not Cinco De Mayo and my birthday has already passed. So I had to come up with a reason. I thought for a couple minutes and then I realized, "It's five o'clock somewhere."

When shopping for a margarita maker, it's wise to keep in mind that no two margarita makers are alike. Some will be better than others based upon performance, price, and features offered. Nostalgia Electrics has one of the most impressive margarita makers in the market and it's quite a steal. This machine can make up to a gallon of margaritas at one time. Simply fill the top with ice, margarita mix and as much tequila to tickle your fancy. Then secure the safety lid and turn the machine on. Within a matter of minutes you will have delicious, refreshing ice-blended margaritas at your fingertips. If you decide to switch it up and want to move the party elsewhere you can easily transport it to the next party with the movable handle. 

With Autumn in the air and the apple trees in full bloom you can't go wrong with an apple cider flavored margarita.  

Yield: serves 1, is easily multiplied
Total Time: 5 minutes


1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
orange segments and apple slices
cinnamon + cane sugar + coarse sugar for glass rimming
cinnamon sticks for garnish


Add a few spoonfuls of cane sugar, coarse sugar and cinnamon to a plate. Run an orange segment around the edge of the glass, then press into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat the rim. Add a few orange slices in the bottom of the glass, fill with ice, then add the Grand Marnier, tequila and apple cider and stir to mix. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Enjoy!

Note: As a rule, I generally prefer silver tequila in my margaritas, but the gold here really gives a “warmth” that matches the cider and cinnamon perfectly.
