Rio Bravo


7. October 2014 by swizzzlestick

Imagine!! A good portion of Cachaça, fresh ginger, lime juice and orgeat!

The taste of the Rio Bravo  is surprisingly sensational, it alarms all your taste buds and awakens your senses! Created by John Gakuru who has worked in some of the best bars in the world (found in Tom Sandham´s book World´s Best cocktails).


1 large slice of Ginger (chopped), 1 and 3/4 oz. Cachaça, 4 TS Lime Juice, 4 TS Orgeat Syrup, garnish: Orange Zest Knot


Muddle the chopped ginger in a shaker, add the remaining ingredients, shake with ice and double strain into a glass. Garnish with a orange zest knot.

  1. YES — a favorite, and I love cachaca, anyway. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That’s a good one for sure. It’s also included in the PDT Cocktail Book (slightly different ratios I believe). If you ever make your own orgeat, it is a great way to enjoy it.
