The Diablo definitely calls for a silver (white) tequila that won't disrupt the blackcurrant flavour of the cassis too much. Jose Cuervo Classico Tequila is a fine example with a peppery edge that marries nicely with the ginger ale. Smooth and refreshing, this is a lovely aperitif to sip as the sun goes down.

1½ oz Jose Cuervo Classico Tequila
¾ oz crème de cassis
½ oz fresh lime juice
Ginger ale

Lime wheel

1. In a tumbler, stir together tequila, crème de cassis and lime juice. Add ice and top up with ginger ale. Garnish with a lime wheel.
