About Crafty Cocktail’s Cachaça Cocktail Kit
Many spirits exist in the world, and while they remain relatively unknown in the cocktail culture of North America, their popularity in their countries of origin is unquestionable. Cachaca is one such spirit, as it is the most popular alcohol in Brazil, but is still little known in our neck of the woods. This is not from lack of quality, however, as many brands often match or outstrip the complex flavor profiles of some of the world’s best rums or tequilas, spirits to which Cachaca is often compared. Distilled using fresh sugarcane juice, opposed to rum which is fermented using sugarcane by-products, the result is often a much brighter and invigorating flavor profile, with diverse layering and intriguing complexity. Perfect for refreshing, warm-weather cocktails, this understated spirit is slowly making its way into wider cocktail culture, and this month’s box, Copacabana, is very representative of this spirit’s potential to be recognized along with other liquors in the top echelons of cocktail bartending in North America.
The Crafty’s Caipirinha is a version of the archetypal Cachaca cocktail in the world. Brazil’s national drink, is simple yet extremely refreshing and complex, stemming from the unique profile of Cachaca which is paired with raw sugar and lime.
The Black Star blasts your palette on an interstellar adventure, combining blackberry jam, lime, and green apple with Cachaca’s distinct characteristics, all topped off with a whimsical green apple star garnish.
Coco’s Assistant will help you temporarily forget about your monotonous list of daily tasks by transporting you to a Brazilian beach, with creamy coconut and tangy lime heightening the tropical elements of the base spirit.
This menu is meant to enhance and compliment the flavors of this underappreciated spirit and introduce the uninitiated to the potential that Cachaca has to produce amazing cocktails. Get acquainted with this wonderful alcohol and use this experience to broaden your horizons as to what many other parts of the world consider the ‘norm’ when they enjoy an alcoholic beverage.
