As the sun sets a little earlier, the leaves begin to change colors and we become surrounded by pumpkin spice everything, it can only mean one thing ~ fall is here! Other than the designated date, do you know the signs of fall beginning?
In some regions of North American the landscape begins to burst with vibrant colored leaves of red, yellow and orange shades. The leaves begin to fall off of the trees which may not be as exciting for the parents who rake the leaves as it is for the children who would rather jump into piles of leaves with friends. The temperatures start to drop as the nights get longer and everyone prepares for the winter months ahead.
Whether you're planning to picnic amongst the fall foilage, pick pumpkins at the local pumpkin patch or host a bonfire or cool outdoor party for friends, a Pumpkin Spice Margarita or Autumn Cran-Orange Margarita will certainly feature the flavors of fall that you crave. So grab your cozy sweater and toast to the first day of fall on September 23rd with delicious seasonal cocktail recipes on behalf of Sauza Tequila, each with a combination of tempting ingredients and flavors to keep you cozy and warm this fall.
