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.

LEBLON CACHAÇA AT THE L.A. FILM FESTIVAL!

The LA Film Festival had a great turnout Friday and Saturday nights, with a never ending supply of Leblon Caipirinhas!


LA Film Festival goers flooded the live.create lounge when it opened on June 18th, and could not get enough of our sweet and sour Brazilian Cocktail.  The smell of fresh crushed limes enticed the crowd, while the sweet taste forced them to come back for seconds and thirds!


Several bands played throughout the day for a fun break in between viewing films at the festival.  Guests came from all over to enjoy amazing company, play word games on the wall, paint art on the community canvasses, and to drink fresh Leblon Caipirinhas.

Saturday, June 19th, featured the Film Maker’s opening party and drinks were flowing starting at 5:00 P.M. Word had spread throughout the festival, and fans were now coming up to request the “Brazilian Margarita” they heard so much about!  Brazilians in the crowd were enticing strangers to try out the popular drink.  Everyone enjoyed the band Fishbone, who performed late into the night. The fun lasted until 2:00 A.M. with our bartenders serving Leblon Caipirinhas for 8 hours straight! With such a great response from everyone there, it was a great opportunity to get the word out with our Legalize Cachaça movement!

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.
