Pumpkins: Smashing Pumpkin Margarita

Tis the season for pumpkins! I made this Halloween cocktail- a twist on the classic Margarita! Meet the Smashing Pumpkin Margarita... it's YUM!

What you need:

2 oz. Tequila
1 can Pumpkin puree
½ cup Brown sugar
¼ cup Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
1 pinch Nutmeg
2 cups Water
½ oz. Orange liqueur
½ Lime juice

Make pumpkin simple syrup by combining pumpkin puree with brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water in a saucepan over low heat. Stir for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cool, and strain. Combine the juice of half a lime, tequila, and 2 oz. pumpkin simple syrup. Shake well and serve on the rocks. I served it in a glass rimmed in orange sugar and garnished it with Pumpkin Marshmallow Peeps.

Smashing Pumpkin Margarita! Happy Halloween... Cheers! xo Lizzie
