The rio has done a major re-haul to their bar menu; tweaking their small plates and adding an entirely new cocktails list. While the new skinny margarita was quite tasty, and only 174 calories, I was most impressed with the rio’s coin margarita. Premium cuervo platino tequila was expertly mixed with cointreau, which has a great balance of sweet and bitter flavors. A scoop of ice, a squeeze of fresh lime and a orange twist in a cold low-ball glass finish things off. Not only does the coin marg have a great balanced flavor, its very smooth too. You can taste the alcohol but it is not over powering. Pair the coin with some crispy jalapeno caps or the rio’s queso and you are sitting pretty in my eyes.
