Pumpkin Spice Margarita

If apple cider is not your thing, then consider this unusual marriage of pumpkin spice and tequila.

The key to making this seasonal spin on the margarita work is using the proper tequila—that is, reposado tequila instead of a clean and clear blanco. This richer, aged tequila’s earthiness helps maintain the warm spices, yet it’s still light enough to not overpower the orange liqueur.

– 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
– 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
– 2 ounces reposado tequila
– 1 ounce orange liqueur
– 2 teaspoons pumpkin puree
– Cinnamon for rimming (optional)

Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon.
