This was a name, suggested by my daughter, in search of a drink. Of course it needed tequila. And it had to be dark. Initially I drizzled the cassis into the bottom of the glass. But to avoid a margarita flavor and an overwhelming sweetness at the end, I stirred the drink with my finger.

2 oz tequila
1 oz lime
½ oz creme de cassis
½ oz triple sec

2 oz tequila
1½ oz triple sec
2 oz lime juice

Combine over ice in an old fashioned glass.
