Legalize Cachaça supporters came out to the 1st ever Baile Funkie Fofo pop up party at the Thompson LES rooftop pool in NYC for some cocktails and beats. DJ Manero spun poolside, Gotham Synchro performed though out the evening, the Leblon Caipirinha Bar was mixing up strawberry basil and traditional caipirinhas, and the VIP’s had their very own Caipiristas to mix and muddle their drinks. Check out the scene covered by New York Insider TV.
The Legalize Movement has spread throughout New Orleans with great success! Steve Luttmann, Founder of Leblon Cachaça, was mixing up a storm, showing attendees of the Spirited Dinner what a true Caipirinha tastes like. To continue the night’s excitement, there was a Save the Caipirinha after-party at the Royal Sonesta Courtyard.
