The Devil Inside: A Cocktail Recipe

I'm a little sassy. I've been called an enabler,  a sparkplug, and a gunslinger.

It makes perfect sense that I would be interested in a cocktail called El Diablo. The weather forecast looked good and I had a bottle of tequila. So, I sent out an open invite for post-work drinks outside, set out tortilla chips and made guacamole, and re-interpreted the El Diablo. It's a well-balanced drink (a little sweet, a little sour) with a phenomenal rosy color. Do yourself a favor: serve it up with a waiver and release of liability. You shouldn't be responsible for whatever happens next.

El Diablo

(all ingredients should be chilled)
2 cups tequila
1 cup creme de cassis
1 and 1/2 cup Cointreau
3 cups fresh-squeezed orange juice

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir well. Makes one pitcher of trouble.
Note: You may wish to strain the cocktail before serving.
