Cachaca Cocktails: Caipirinha + BatidaCachaça is the national spirit of Brazil and made from distilled sugar cane. Each week this September, we'll be featuring two Cachaça cocktails: one to try in our restaurant and one to make at home!
Texas de Brazil Cachaça Cocktail: Caipirinha The national drink of Brazil, Caipirinhas are made with Cachaça — a spirit made by distilling fermented sugarcane juice — along with fresh lime and sugar. Pair this traditional treat with savory churrasco grilled meats and selections from our gourmet salad area.
