Brazil, world-famous for its beaches, bikinis and glittering nightlife. Despite its spectacular wilderness areas and fascinating culture, this nation enjoys almost mythic appeal to the hedonists, jetsetters and anyone in search of wilder adventures. When people finally arrive to this fabled party destination, the thing to do is order a drink. Specifically, a caipirinha.

The key ingredient in Brazil’s national cocktail is cachaca, a stiff sugarcane liquor ranging in quality from word-class rot gut in cheap plastic bottles, to pricey artisan brands served in Rio de Janeiro’s best nightclubs. The finest are manufactured in the old sugarcane fields near Brasilia.
