Introducing the latest installment in our “A Bartender’s Riff” video series— produced right here in our hometown of Bend, Oregon.

At Riff, collaboration is embedded in our DNA. We’re starting out with cocktails, but who knows where we’re headed next as we expand our“A _______’s Riff” video series to include artisans, chefs, bakers, artists… (you fill in the blank). We start with the question: “what if?” Which leads to fun, exciting, and unpredictable, new takes on the familiar. Each project uniquely expressive of our collaborator’s unique personality and style.

“El Chapo” is a craft cocktail recipe created by “The Duke of Distillates,” Ben Agnini, bartender at Washington. This cold brewed coffee drink is a straightforward reposado cocktail that takes hints of classic flavors, then adds its own twist and shake.
