El Diablo Cocktail

Sharing is caring!

The El Diablo Cocktail is a refreshing and vibrant drink that combines the rich flavors of reposado tequila with the sweet, fruity taste of crème de cassis, the tartness of lime juice, and the spicy fizz of ginger beer. This cocktail is traditionally served over ice in a highball glass, making it a perfect choice for warm weather and festive gatherings.

Tasting Notes

The El Diablo Cocktail offers a balanced taste experience. The smooth, slightly smoky flavor of the reposado tequila is complemented by the dark, berry-like sweetness of crème de cassis. The lime juice adds a sharp, citrusy tang that cuts through the sweetness, while the ginger beer provides a lively, spicy finish that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
