Happy Hour: Jim's Diablo

Happy Hour: Jim's Diablo

When I heard the name of this cocktail, I assumed it would be a devilish drink that was either too spicy or super strong. I was pleasantly surprised when it was neither hot or potent, but rather a delightfully well-balanced, tasty cocktail.

Despite its blushing color, this mix of tequila, Canton, and lemon juice is not a typically girlie, sweet concoction.

Created by one of New York's top mixologists, Jim Meehan, the diablo is simple to make at home. Take the time to chill the glasses before hand, it will make a better drink.

The recipe calls for creme de cassis, but I made mine with Chambord, because that's what was in my liquor cabinet. To check out Jim's Diablo,

hmmm this is a really interesting and not at all common drink. i do have a question though - what's the ginger liquor? i don't know if i've ever seen that one, and i guess i might need to figure something out if i want to make it even resemble this recipe.
