Can’t fight the heat…Cool off with an frozen Caipirinha!

The temperature is rising outside throughout the Northeast, with no signs of slowing down!  The heat wave is now expanding throughout the rest of the US!  If your temperature is boiling due to the 100+ degree heat, grab an ice cold Caipirinha.  Look out for our Caipi-Mobile driving around L.A. and NYC!  If you are lucky enough to catch the Legalize Truck, ask for their free Leblon Caipirinha flavored sorbet samples.

Here are a few of our frozen Caipirinha recipes in case you want to try to make one at home!

Black and Blue Berry Batida

2 oz. Leblon Cachaça
2 oz. condensed milk
½ oz. blackberry liqueur
¼ cup blackberries
¼ cup blueberries
1 cup cracked ice

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with a small pillow of freshly whipped cream and berries.

Cachaça Colada

1 ¾ oz. Leblon Cachaça
1 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. pina colada mix

We the People, in order to form a more perfect bar, seek to establish Cachaça as 'Cachaça,' Brazil's Noblve Spirit. We formally and necessarily declare that Cachaça is independent of, and therefore not, 'Brazilian Rum.' We make this declaration with no prejudice or malice towards Rum, nor to any other of our brethren spirits, such as Vodka, Tequila, or Gin.

To prove the above, let facts be submitted to a candid world: We recognize that Cachaça is made only from fresh-pressed cane juice, not molasses, and can only come from Brazil. We declare that Cachaça is the key ingredient to the Caipirinha, Brazil's National Cocktail. We also recognize that Cachaça mixes well with just about anything - fruit juices, sodas, and tonics - and brings a wonderful Brazilian touch to any classic cocktail.

We therefore hold these truths to be self-evident; that Cachaça is Brazil's Noble Spirit, endowed by its creator with certain unalienable characteristics, that among these are a fruity nose, fresh taste, and a long, clean finish. And in support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the confidence of our combined passion and expertise, we mutually pledge our understanding, our professionalism and our sacred honor.
