The El Diablo cocktail is exactly what you need for Halloween. It’s simple and the perfect drink to for any fall gathering.

Use white, unaged tequila or “blanco” for this cocktail. Sometimes this tequila is called “silver” tequila. 


This is a liqueur made from black currants. If you can't find it raspberry liqueur will work too. 

Creme de cassis

Fresh lime juice is always best in cocktails and gives a fresh punch of acidity.
