Cocktail time

El Diablo

El Diablo is one of the all-time, classic tequila cocktails. It was said to have been first created by the legendary restaurateur Victor ‘Trader Vic’ Bergeron in San Francisco around 1946.

Named ‘the devil’ for the fiery kick from the ginger beer, crème de cassis is added for sweetness to soften the ginger. Extremely drinkable, it’s little wonder this became an iconic cocktail.
