Blame it On Rio

Blame it On Rio

There are lots of things I’d like to blame on Rio, unfortunately I’ve never been there. However, after a couple of these rather delightful champagne cocktails, who cares?

The video.



  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2 – 3 dashes of orange bitters
  • 1/4 oz cachaca
  • 1/2 oz banana liqueur
  • Dry sparkling wine


  1. Drop the sugar cube in a champagne flute and soak with the bitters, then set aside
  2. Add the spirits to a shaker with ice and shake to chill
  3. Strain over the sugar mix
  4. Top with the champagne
  5. It’s an excellent idea to sip this while watching the Michael Caine movie, Blame it on Rio.
