This week the New York Times published an article adequately titled “Allure of Cachaça Spreads to U.S. From Brazil”. If you can read the article…is pretty good. I just think is funny that now is when the U.S. is supposedly catching on. I personally have been obsessed with caipirinhas since 2002. They are my favorite drink!!! But definitely like them more how they make them in Brazil. Because here in the states is all about tasting the alcohol, which is not the point of the drink. Is about tasting a chilling, smooth drink that will cool you off and make you happy. It is not about getting drunk…but about enjoyment…maybe that is the difference between the cultures…

PS. As a disclaimer…do not have more than 5 caipirinhas at a time…you will feel it the next day…
