Classic Cocktail: El Diablo

This week in my Spanish class we learned about Cinco de Mayo. Not the white-people-chugging-Cuervo-til-they-yak Murica! version of the holiday, but the actual history of the Battle of Puebla where Mexico gave France the old shove off. So here's a little agave cocktail you can drink while cursing imperialism. Damn you, Napoleon! But yea, we'll still keep the cassis. 

-El Diablo -             


1.75 oz blanco tequila
.5 oz Cassis
.75 oz fresh lime
spicy ginger beer

Shake all ingredients except for ginger beer, and strain into a collins* glass filled with ice, top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wheel.

*The tall, narrow one.
