WORLD CUP 2014: IN BRAZIL!

Unfortunately, our hometown team, Brazil, lost to Netherlands 2:1 in their World Cup quarter-final game today.   We still love the Brazil team and are looking forward to the next World Cup games in 2014, which will be HELD IN BRAZIL!!! Hopefully playing in our home base will be lucky for us and we will win the World Cup next time!

Great job throughout the entire World Cup Brazil!  We are sorry you did not make it all the way to win the finals, but we know you tried your best.

Keep your hopes up for the next world cup and grieve this World Cup loss
by treating yourself to a nice refreshing Leblon Caipirinha!

BIRTHDATE

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.
