This tequila highball with a kick of sweetened ginger juice gets its name from the drizzle of cassis meant to represent the blood of the Devil. Instead we use Mommenpop Blood Orange for its scented ripe fruit citrus notes and hints of black cardamom, rose hips, and spicy peppercorns.
1.5 oz Mommenpop Blood Orange
.75 oz tequila or mezcal
.75 oz ginger syrup
.75 oz lime juice
1.5 oz spicy ginger beer
Combine all ingredients (except for ginger beer) in a cocktail shaker with 5 ice cubes and shake hard for 5 seconds.
Add ginger beer to the shaker tin. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice cubes.
Garnish with a lime wheel.
