Thirsty Thursday--Sour Apple Jalapeño Margarita

I'm so happy that it is officially Fall.
If the weather would just realize it, everyone would be happy.

But alas, I'm paying respect to the autumnal season with this little gem.
(I even added a few pumpkins and copper in the background for ambiance.)

(You know that I have to add a little jalapeño, I've got a million of them.)

2 Granny Smith apples, juiced (about 6 ounces)
4 ounces silver tequila
2 ounces Grand Marnier
3 ounces lime juice
2 ounces agave nectar or simple syrup
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced thinly
6-8 dashes orange bitters

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the apple juice, tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and agave nectar.  Shake vigorously and pour into glasses rimmed with lime juice and coarse salt.  Add jalapeño slices and a few dashes of bitters.
