The Classic Caipirinha
A long-time bartender friend - she really knows her stuff - said of this one, "It makes a damned good Caipirinha and the flavor doesn’t disappear when you add lime juice."
1.5 ounces Abelha Organic Cachaça Prata
Muddle half a lime with the sugar in a glass. Add crushed ice, then pour the cachaça atop and stir. Top up with a bit more ice and enjoy!
The Latin Fashioned
Enjoy this in front of a fire or as an after-dinner drink for a Brazilian riff on an iconic cocktail.
2 ounces Abelha Organic Cachaça Ouro
Place sugar cube in an old-fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, then add a dash of plain water. Muddle until dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add aged cachaça. Add an orange slice and a cocktail cherry if you're in the mood.
Drinkware recommendation: switch it up with Nautical Rocks Glasses.
A beautiful pink hue and a taste to match.
Shake all ingredients with ice and fine-strain into a chilled coupe. Twist a lime zest over top and discard. Cocktail cherry on top if it suits!
