How to make

👉 straight to the glass / 🥃 highball / 🍹 long drink (15cl) / ⏱️ 4 mn

The El Diablo cocktail first appeared in 1956 in Trader Vic's "Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink". In the latter this cocktail was then called "Mexican El Diablo", later shortened to "El Diablo".

It is assumed that this name was given to this cocktail because of its bright red color brought by the crème de cassis.

You can pour the crème de cassis at the beginning or at the end, this gives you visually different Diablos, and in no way disturbs the balance of this delicious cocktail where the flavors of tequila, citrus fruits, fruity cream and ginger ale go great together.
