Agave Cocktail Series: Raffa’s Remedy

Raffas Remedy, Bar Calico

Think of tequila cocktails, and the Margarita is first to come to mind. It’s arguably summer’s most sought out cocktail. But the agave based cocktails can go beyond the popular combination of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Take for example Head Bartender Mike Campbell’s (from Bar Calico ) agave creation Raffa’s Remedy. It’s an elevated but feisty beverage that’s refreshing yet dry, spirit-forward and has a citrus boost.

This new series allows readers to go beyond the well-known recipes using agave, i.e., a combination of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Break out the cocktail shaker and try these contemporary agave-based creations that come straight from the cocktail shakers of today’s top bartenders.

  • Author: Raffa's Remedy - Head Bartender Mike Campbell, Bar Calico


Raffa's Remedy utilizes a milk wash punch, botanical liqueur, and herbal sweetness to create a juicy and smoky cocktail. Named after a lovely man who makes delicious coconut drinks off the coast of Costa Rica in Tamarindo, after meeting, Head Bartender Mike Campbell honored this man with the cocktail titled Raffa's Remedy. This elevated but feisty beverage is refreshing yet dry, spirit-forward with a citrus boost as with all Bar Calico's cocktails.
