1 oz Tequila
12 oz Mezcal
1 12 oz Apple cider
34 oz Lemon juice
2 oz Ginger beer (to top)
Shake, strain into a Collins over ice, topping with ginger beer. As a garnish, rim the glass with a mix of 4 parts sugar, 2 parts ground cinnamon, 2 parts ground nutmeg, and 1 part ancho chile powder. Float diced red apple slices.
The name is a portmanteau of manzana asada, "grilled apple."

I believe this should be

I believe this should be attributed to Tad Carducci & Paul Tanguay (aka "The Tippling Bros."), who developed the initial cocktail programs for the Mercadito Group.  It's listed in their book "A Lime and a Shaker", Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015, p.196.  Recipe there is listed as 1 oz blanco tequila, 3/4 oz mezcal, 1-1/2 oz apple cider, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/4 oz maple syrup & 3 oz ginger beer.
