We come to the end of our three-part tequila series with this refresher. The crème de cassis lends it a beautiful purple color, and the ginger beer gives it a zing. Next week, in the lead-up to The Kentucky Derby, we'll make a mint julep.
In a shaker, add tequila, crème de cassis, lime juice, and ice. Shake until thoroughly combined. Pour into a collins glass over ice. Top off the cocktail with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wheel.
