The Legalize Truck was named “Hamptons Car of the Day” by Guest of a Guest. The article describes the truck as “the coolest destination for you and your friends to enjoy a cold Caipirinha or their newest concoction, the LeBlon James.” Make sure to wave the truck down if you see it cruising the LA or NYC streets and ask for some complimentary Caipirinha flavored sorbet and how you can help the Legalize Cachaça movement.
