The Black Diablo

1-1/2 oz Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz Crème de Cassis
4 oz Crabbie's Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer (Chilled)
1/2 Activated Charcoal Capsule

Combine tequila and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously with ice until cold. In a highball glass, pour the crème de cassis on the bottom of the glass. Using the back of a spoon, carefully pour the tequila and lime juice mixture as to not disrupt the layer of crème de cassis, followed by ice-cold Crabbie's Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Open a charcoal capsule and pour half of the contents onto the surface of the drink. Gently stir the charcoal into the top of the cocktail creating the black layered effect. Garnish with a brandied cherry (or three) and finish with a festive straw.
