The earliest reference to the El Diablo is in a 1946 book from Trader Vic's, the Emeryville, California headquartered Polynesian themed restaurant chain. It is one of the few tequila drinks published in that and subsequent Trader Vic's guides. it most likely derives its name from its brilliant red color.
