El Diablo

Easily one of the best tequila-based cocktails, this tall, pink, refreshing drink works on both a cold day as well as a hellish one. Traditionally a mixture of tequila, lime juice, crème de cassis, and ginger beer; it's spicy and tasty enough to get you into plenty of trouble.

How to make an El Diablo at home

Bonus: What makes Ryan Fitzgerald's version at Beretta superior is his use of homemade ginger syrup and soda water in place of ginger ale. The handmade touch yields a spicier and more complex manifestation of Old Scratch.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
