A colorful example of a seasonal caipirinha twist.
- 2 oz Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça
- 4-5 blueberries
- half of a lime
- 0.5 tablespoon fine sugar
Slice the lime in half and discard the pith. Cut into slices and drop into your glass. Cover with fine sugar and muddle to extract the juice from the flesh and the oils from the peel. Add the blueberries and give ‘em a muddle, too. Add cachaça and ice, and give it a shake. Try adding various fruits or herbs when in season: berries, blood oranges, kumquats, basil, and mint all have their own flavor profiles.
The purest representation of organic sugarcane from Southern Brazil, this silver cachaça proves that terroir matters. The aroma of bananas immediately present, followed by pleasantly floral rainforest notes that shine through the spirit. Sea salt balances the cachaca’s tropicality, adding a savory quality and settling the overall impression to a mouth-watering sweet red pepper. This cachaça is rested in chemically-inert stainless steel tanks for one year to smoothen it without changing its flavor.
