The Fallen Diablo cocktail is a great addition to your upcoming adult Halloween soirée. Based on Trader Vic’s El Diablo cocktail, this devilish drink is easy to sip on and will balance out all the sweets you are sure to encounter on Halloween night.
Looking for more festive cocktails to serve this spooky season? Try the Corpse Reviver No. 2 with gin and Lillet Blanc. If Jägermeister and tequila are more your speed, try the frightfully good Fright Night in the Grove cocktail.
This simplified version omits the ginger beer and other sweet garnishes for those who want a slightly more tangy rendition. The Fallen Diablo features Cassis liqueur, or Créme de Cassis, a bittersweet liqueur made of black currants. With a strong dark berry flavor and lush fruity aroma, you don’t need much to add that pop of tart berry that will make your beverage sinfully good.
