Amburana-finished cachaça and French apple brandy are good friends in this straightforward highball.
- 1.5 oz Novo Fogo Colibri
- 0.5 Calvados
- 3 oz tonic water
Build in a highball glass with cubed ice. Garnish with lemon peel.
To mature the Colibri expression (“hummingbird” in Portuguese), we moved the cachaça back and forth over the years between repurposed oak barrels and amburana (Brazilian teak) barrels. The predominant spices of vanilla and toffee (from the oak) and cinnamon and chestnuts (from the teak) come together in a balanced expression that also includes tropical fruit such as banana and passionfruit but finishes playfully with notes of snickerdoodle.
