Place all ingredients except the ginger ale into a 10 oz highball filled with ice. Top off with ginger ale.


Add a dash of celery bitters, if desired.


Inspired by a close friend living in Manhattan whose drink of choice is tequila with ginger ale.

jensck commented on 5/08/2016:

This seems like a very odd take on the El Diablo; the recipe is almost identical except for creme de Violette instead of creme de cassis. (The other big difference being that the El Diablo is amazing IMO, and this is, well... not.) Those two ingredients even look similar, both having a deep purple color. Is it possible that the creme de Violette was an error?
