A good tequila may inspire devilish behavior on occasion, but this cocktail is as heavenly as they come.
Casamigos Blanco is crisp, buttery smooth and dangerously drinkable. When combined with Lejay Crème de Cassis — a rich, black currant liqueur — tart lime juice and a spicy ginger beer, you get a drink that’s delectable and exquisitely complex.
Whether you’re a sinner or a saint, El Diablo will leave you wanting more.
1 1/2 oz. Casamigos Blanco Tequila
3/4 oz. Lejay Crème de Cassis Liqueur
