Gringo Swizzle

I'm not sure that this drink really qualifies as a swizzle. It's really like a Mexican Singapore Sling. I was thrilled to be able to put a cute little umbrella on it, because gringos can't handle the sun.

I was also interested to try a drink that combines creme de cassis and tequila. And because it is a swizzle, I did my best to prepare it in the glass with a swizzle stick and not in a shaker.
  • 2 oz. silver tequila
  • 1/2 oz. creme de cassis
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • ginger ale
Combine liquor in a highball glass with plenty of ice. Stir rapidly until ice melts half-way down the glass and the liquor has risen to meet it. Add more ice and stir again until the outside of the glass is frosted. Add juices and stir slowly. Top with ginger ale.
