6 Spooky, Spicy and Smokey Halloween Cocktails to Make at Home

Halloween is just around the corner.  Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or dressing up your drink on October 31st, here are some spooky, spicy and smokey Halloween cocktails that look festive and taste delicious.  

The 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.

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.

Bonus: the bigger the pumpkin, the bigger the drink.

Tanteo Morgue-Rita

Just because its fall, it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a classic Tanteo Jalapeño Margarita. We dressed up our original Jalapeño Margarita with some Activated Charcoal Powder. The result is a velvety black Jalapeño Margarita. Same delicious flavor, different color. This is an easy go to drink that will definitely put you in the Halloween spirit.

Bonus: Activated charcoal is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t re-absorb them.
