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.
Our bright lime green Legalize Cachaça truck definitely stands out like a sore thumb while driving through NYC and Los Angeles! The truck caught the eye of a CNN reporter in NY, who was intrigued by our cause and decided to write a story about the Legalize Cachaça Movement and our delicious Leblon Caipirinha, a Brazilian cocktail made with Leblon Cachaça, fresh limes, sugar, and ice. Cachaça Tom and his team of Leblonettes work day and night to spread the word about Legalize Cachaça. They are trying to allow Cachaça to be in its own category, instead of being forced to call itself “Brazilian Rum.” Tom and his beautiful Brazilian Leblonettes give out pamphlets with information about Cachaça and samples of refreshing Caipirinha flavored sorbet, which definitely helps New Yorkers fight the torturous heat these days. As more and more people become involved in our movement, we know we know we will be able to successfully petition the U.S. government and gain our right to be called CACHAÇA!
