It's that time of year...pumpkin everything!


Here at Defiance Tools we are passionate about cocktails and mixology and have some great tools to help you be the best bartender you can be. Our tools are great for the home bartender as well as the professional bartender.


We are excited to share this recipe written by Candy Kirby for Better You and hope you check out our Mixology and Cocktail Collection.


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.
