Drink of the Week: Riva Grill’s A-Riva-Derci
One of the largest components of Tahoe’s nightlife is the mix of countless breweries, bars and restaurants that offer unique drinks difficult to find outside the basin. In our Drink of the Week segment, we’ll showcase one type of beer, wine, cocktail — you name it — to try during your stay in the region.
This week’s drink is Riva Grill’s A-Riva-Derci, a three-rum cocktail that is sure to take you back to summer.
Bacardi Black, Cruzan 151 and Mount Gay rums are mixed with guava juice, a splash of orange-pineapple juice and fresh coconut cream, making for a sweet-tasting concoction that will place you on the shores of your favorite beach.
When sipping this drink, one doesn’t feel like Tahoe is barreling toward the start of winter (and the tropical garnish certainly helps counteract the autumn chill). Sit back, relax and think of the simpler times when you didn’t have to wake up 45 minutes early to scrape ice off your car.
