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!
