Cocktail of the Month


From star bartender Naren Young comes this pumpkin-tinged Margarita twist. The additions of allspice dram, amaretto and pumpkin puree to the classic tequila cocktail lend it sweet, nutty, spicy flavors that render it perfect for sipping all autumn and winter long and especially on the turkey-themed holiday. We won’t suggest that it replace your pumpkin pie, but it will be a particularly appropriate accompaniment to it or any other sweet fall treat.


  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 1/4 ounce allspice dram
  • 1/4 ounce amaretto
  • 1 ounce pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • Garnish: roasted pumpkin slice


  1. On a small plate, combine the ground ginger and sea salt. Rub the lime wedge along half of the rim of a rocks glass and dip the glass in the mixture. (For a finer texture, pound the ginger and sea salt with a mortar and pestle.)
  2. Add the tequila, allspice dram, amaretto, pumpkin puree, lime juice and agave nectar into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
  3. Strain into the prepared glass over fresh ice.
  4. Garnish with a roasted pumpkin slice.(Source:
