Thanks to this tequila brand, below are some great recipes to help spice up your Halloween evening!

Peppered Pear Margarita- Pears come into season at the end of summer, and the best time to enjoy the fruit is when it is in season. We muddled a pear with 2 oz. of our Jalapeño infused Tequila, added a bit of lemon juice, and agave nectar. The result is a delicious peppery pear goodness, perfect for fall. Garnish this drink with a rosemary stem. Rim with a Tanteo Jalapeño Salt.

1 ½ oz. Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila

2 ½ oz. Pear Purée

½ oz. Agave Nectar

½ oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

1  Fresh Rosemary Stem For Garnish



Pumpkin Smoke Margarita- Pumpkin spice is old news, kick it up a notch and try Pumpkin Smoke. We mixed pumpkin purée with our Chipotle infused Tequila. The result is a delicious smokey pumpkin concoction. You won’t need a glass for this one, a carved out pumpkin not only looks festive but will taste extra rich

Figgin Fire Margarita- Figs may no longer be in season, but they are perfect when mixed in a cocktail with our Chipotle infused Tequila. This cocktail is so flavorful, hints of smokey chipotle balanced with some sweet fig undertones.
