Comment:

The tequila, red fruit and ginger aren't exactly a subtle combination but it is one that has proved both popular and enduring.

UK bartenders and other countries where 25ml and 50ml measures are standard may prefer this recipe:

50ml Tequila reposado
20ml Crème de cassis
25ml Freshly squeezed lime juice
Top with Ginger beer

Origin:

Thought to have originated in California during the 1940's. The name translates as 'The Devil'.
