The Amaro Week cocktail series continues with Rabo de Galo, an amaro cocktail using Brazil’s national spirit.
This amaro cocktail takes us to Brazil via Italy for the Rabo de Galo, a very popular drink in Brazil made with cachaça. Rabo de Galo translates as “tail of the cock”, or cocktail. In this case, the vegetal notes of the cachaça play well with the vegetal-herbal notes of Cynar, the artichoke-based amaro.
For more information about amari, refer to the Essential Guide to Amaro.
