I've made this drink many times and fall in love with it more and more each time. The Devil's Handshake is a really pleasant mix of fruits and tequila, semi sweet and tart. It is the ginger puree that makes this drink really sing by adding a subtle sweet and spicy taste that adds depth. As far as the egg white goes, I think it's essential for creating the smooth texture and bringing all of the flavors together. Though, if you're inclined you could skip it without having too much of an effect on the overall drink.

Prep Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 4 minutes

Yield: 1 Drink



  1. Dry shake vigorously, ice and shake again.
  2. Strain onto fresh ice in a highball glass.
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge.

*To make your own ginger puree:
Cut thin slices of fresh ginger and process in a food processor or blender until smooth. Optionally, add a teaspoon of sugar. Place the puree into an ice cube tray and freeze. Place the cubes in a bag or sealed container in the freezer until ready to make the drink. 1 cube makes about 2 tablespoons (depending on the size of the cube tray) and take just a few minutes to thaw.
