El Diablo

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

As with so many classic cocktails, El Diablo’s provenance is hard to pin down. Some say it was created in the 1940s by an unidentified bartender in California. One verifiable fact: It appeared in the 1947 Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide as the Mexican El Diablo and was one of the first tequila drinks.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
  3. 1/2 ounce crème de cassis (black-currant liqueur)
  4. 3 ounces chilled ginger beer
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  6. 1 lime wheel, for garnish
  1. Fill a chilled collins glass with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnish and stir well. Garnish the drink with the lime wheel.
