The Mad Farmer and Miss Mercy explore another Tequila based cocktail recipe. The earliest mention of this cocktails appears to be in the Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide from 1946. Hard to tell if that is actually the first mention or if Trader Vic’s invented it. Any way you slice it, it’s pretty tasty, so try it out.

½ oz. crème de cassis
½ oz. fresh lime juice
2–3 oz. ginger beer
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Garnish: lime wedge and fresh blackberry or candied ginger (optional)
