Recipes

El Diablo

The original recipe calls for the drink to be built in a glass, with the crème de cassis drizzled in at the end, sinking to the bottom. We tried that way as well as shaken, and we preferred the shaken version – the blackcurrant flavor is much better mixed into the drink than sitting at the bottom of it.
