Just for kicks and giggles I did a search for Caipirinhas and found this thread hiding waaaayyyyyy at the bottom. Does this threads age mean that no one likes them, or that no one 'says' they like them? Have they fallen from grace?

Anyone care to join me for a couple?

I *love* Caipirinhas. There's a little tapas place not far from us, called Cascal, that makes very tasty ones (they also have an above average rum selection, which of course isn't saying much -- I think they have about 3 or 5 non-Bacardi/Malibu/Myers/Captain Spicypants-or-whatever-the-hell-it's-called rums). They have a variant with lots of fresh orange and lime pieces added that's quite yummy.

I like 'em. We had Tikiskips bottle of Pitu out a couple of months ago, but everyone aside from myself agreed that it tasted like paint thinner and declined to drink any of it. So caipirinhas were off the menu. Eh, it was late anyway.

Oh well, I'll just keep the cachaca and the Campari to myself.

(They hated Campari too. Poor, innocent, delicious Campari. What did it ever do to earn such disdain?)

All hail Campari.

And I will be calling my distributors to get a bottle of Captain Spicypants first thing in the morning.

Isn't that your name for Hanford? Because that's what I call him.

Hi guys,

Im amazed that so few people have heard of, let alone tried a Caipirinha!

I started bartending over here in London 12 years ago, and it was the first cocktail I learnt to make, and is just behind the Mojito as customers favourite drinks.

Theres a cachaca brand thats about to launch over there, called Sagatiba.

I heard they were doing something in Miami.

Their website is

Any time anyone is over from the U.S, make sure you come and visit us at South London Pacific. First Caipirinha on me

Had my first Caipirinha in Boulder last year at a restaurant called Rhumba. I drank 3 of them at 7 bucks a pop, then stopped at a liquor store on the way back to my hotel and bought a bottle of Cachaša to take home with me.

Last March, I visited a friend in Barcelona. There was a little Brazilian bar just down the street from his apartemento run by a grizzled old barkeep who made the most kickass Caipirinhas I've ever tasted. The secret ingredient was a dash of Angostura bitters.

Count me as another lover of Cachaša and Caipirinhas! I have a few Brazilian friends who introduced me to this wonderful drink (which is probably one of the easiest to make, and hardest to screw up). It's absolutely one of my top 3 favorites!

Unfortunately it's not all that cheap here, costing about $22 for a 1 liter bottle of Ypioca. Evidently there are some "new" brands breaking into the US markest, such as Leblon. But it's REALLY expensive at $34 a bottle. Sorry, but when I know that excellent (not pitu) cachaša can be had for $3 a bottle in Brazil, it makes it a bit hard to pay those prices.

Anyway, I've been waiting for it to explode here in the States, but it hasn't quite yet. I think it has the potential to be the "next big thing", but what do I know?

If you live in the NY area, a really good Cachaca that came onto the market recently is Fazenda Mae de Ouro. Its small production stuff, not like the Pitu or Barriero or Toucano stuff that is industrially made. Makes a killer Caipirinha, it does.

Noticed a good article on cachaca a couple of weeks ago:


(Here's the Caipirinha recipe included)

1/2 lime, quartered
2 tsp sugar
2 oz cachaša
crushed ice
Ľ Muddle sugar and lime wedges in the bottom of a sturdy, short, flat-bottomed glass. But don't crush too vigorously, or the lime-peel will release overly bitter oils. Add cachaša and crushed ice, and stir.

I then noticed all the different brands of cachaca available at a local liquor store. I had no idea!

Cachaša is the third best-selling spirit in the world. (1. Vodka 2. Sujo 3. Cachaša 4. Rum)

Really? I love the stuff myself and we just featured three drinks with it in our restaurants for our Carnaval '08 promotion. We're using Cachaca 61.
