    The Brazillian sugar cane liquor?
    Well....I enjoy the hell out of it. In Caipirinhas.
    And I love you all.

    I don't drink anything that has non american letters in the name.






    Seriously though, never had nor heard of it. Would try for sure though. Is it available in the standard liquor store? Im not big on liquor generally.

    Absolutely delicious. I was in Rio analyzing whether to invest in a business there with my my friend and his brother. The business was donkey shit, totally misrepresented, but I was introduced to caipirinhas, so it was by no means a total waste.

    It can be found at liquor stores, depending upon where you live. Bigger stores will carry a few brands.

    Can you all compare its flavor? Whats its strength? Looks like that drink is just the liguor, sugar and a lime?

    Cachaça is like a very very mild tequila, despite being made from sugar cane. It's made from unrefined cane, so the taste is different than rum. I take my sugar and whizz it in my cleaned coffee grinder to slightly powder it. The sugar in Brazil is finer than ours. That and it dissolves better.
    The drink is about the most refreshing summer drink you can imagine.
    I hope you try this drink. It's fun at BBQ's because it's powerful and the results can be fun.

    If you're driving try guarana soda. Holy fuck it's good. The real Brazilian stuff like Antarctica is the best but Bawls are probably easier to find in America.

    Anyone ending up face down in potato salad or the cacti garden? That's how I know I'm at a real par-tay.

    I juice two limes and put them in a sturdy glass. Top with 2T sugar and muddle with a pestle. Fill glass with ice. Fill to top with Cachaça, stir well.

    Great stuff mentioned here. All of it very easy to find here in the Bay Area due to the huuuuge Brazilian population. The restaurants with "rodizio" are incredible too.



    P.S. Pooh bear, please change this stupid avatar. That's all. :thumbup2:

    Mrs. R'cus had a mixed drink with it the other night, with pineapple and coconut and some other shit. Good stuff.

    Mine was a margarita with habañero in it that made my lips tingle for an hour afterwards.
