Time to fire up that shaker.
- 1.5 oz Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça
- 1 oz lime juice
- a sprig of mint for garnish
- 0.5 oz pineapple juice
- 0.5 oz Serrano pepper syrup*
Add cachaça, lime juice, and pineapple juice with ice and shake. Double-strain over fresh ice and garnish with a hunk of pineapple and a mint spring.
* For the Serrano pepper syrup, simmer one cup of water, two cups of sugar, and two seeded and chopped Serrano peppers for 10 minutes. Strain and chill mixture.
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.
