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.
We helped some of New Yorks’s finest firefighters fight off the NYC heat by serving them Caipirinha flavored sorbet. After educating them about our fight to Legalize Cachaça, the NYC heroes became proud supporters the Legalize movement.
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.
If you have never tried a Caipirinha before, you are definitely missing out! Use the recipe below to make your own Caipirinha at home for all your family and friends.
The Leblon Caipirinha
2 oz. Leblon Cachaça
2 tsp Superfine sugar or 1 oz Simple Syrup*
Directions: Cut the lime into four wedges. Muddle the lime and sugar in a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and add Leblon Cachaça. Shake vigorously. Serve in a rocks glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.
*1 packet of Splenda or Equal can be used in place of superfine sugar.
Have you ever wondered how you could help support our Legalize Cachaça Movement?
The answer is simple…Enjoy a Leblon Caipirinha!
Leblon is the best Cachaça because it is made in the heart of Brazil by the master distiller, Gilles Merlet. Recently, Leblon Cachaça was the only Cachaça awarded the title of Master, above of any other Cachaça. Even Vitoria Secret Model Alessandra Ambrosio agrees that Leblon is the premium Cachaça. She said she felt like she was back in Brazil the instant she took a sip of a Leblon Caipirinha at the Thompson’s LES Hotel. The buzz about Cachaça is growing. We know our Legalize Cachaça Movement has been successful when we see the feedback from magazines, blogs, facebook, twitter, and our Caipi-Mobile.
Raise your glass, cheers, and enjoy a refreshingly delicious Leblon Caipirinha!
