Pumpkin Spice Margarita Recipe

2 Basic B*tch Faves (Pumpkin Spice and Margaritas) in 1 Epic Drink

Pumpkin spice and tequila certainly sound like odd bedfellows, but hear me out. The key to making this seasonal spin on the margarita work is using the right tequila for the task at hand: richer reposado tequila instead of clean and clear blanco. This aged tequila is earthy enough to hold up to the warm spices and nutty gourd but is still light and bright enough that it doesn't overpower the lime and orange liqueur.
