Forget pumpkin pie, this may be the best way to have pumpkins yet!

A bit of pumpkin butter and some cider mixed in with brandy and orange liquor...the hardest thing about making this drink is trying to limit how many you consume...it's so dang tasty you might need someone to cut you off!
This is my take on Half Baked Harvest's Haunted Pumpkin Patch Margarita and I'm in love with it!
I used an apple cider concentrate mixed with water but you can use any apple cider and it would be equally as tasty.

Alternatively, you could make this a mocktail by replacing the brandy with more apple cider and the orange liquor with orange juice.

One last suggestion, with any leftover apple slices I recommend dipping them in the sugar rim that is remaining and having a snack...yummy!
