I'm not sure where this drink got it's name, but it was one of 4 classic tequila cocktail recipes that Elayne Duke head mixologist for Digeo wine and spirits shared with our tequila class at the Astor Center and I knew she'd never steer us wrong!  This may be the best cocktail for my husband: it's got tequila, plus his favorite mixer, ginger beer, plus fresh lime juice and a topper of Creme de Cassis (black currant liqueur) that makes it a little fruity and pink (my manly-man husband loves a pink drink...go figure).  It's easy to make and a great option for imbibing on Cinco de Mayo....or 
any day of the week!
Cheers!  XO  Martha
