Wave goodbye to summer and get ready for the flavors of fall! As we go from flip flops to flats and boots, it’s time to relish the countless ingredients available to use in cocktails and cooking. Save the berry drinks for next summer; now’s the time to enjoy such favorites as apples, cinnamon, figs, pumpkin and pear. According to Partida Tequila’s Bartender Ambassador Jacques Bezuidenhout, fall is a time for experimenting with cocktail flavors. “Fall is one of my favorite cocktail seasons, because flavors like apple, pear, cider and baking spice blend so nicely with aged spirits like Anejo Tequila, Whisky and Cognac. You can still have fun with other spirits like un-aged Tequila, but now is the time that brown spirits really shine.”

Partida Tequila is made from 100% blue agave in the heart of Mexico’s Tequila Valley. With four exquisite marques, Partida’s line consists of Blanco (unaged), Reposado (aged six months), Anejo (aged 18 months) and Elegante Extra Anejo (aged 40 months). The aged Tequilas in the Partida line are rested in one-pass Jack Daniels American oak barrels, imparting a pure, deep, complex flavor that is clean and full bodied.

Here are three delicious options incorporating the fine flavors of fall with award-winning Partida Tequila.
