Hey there! As a dedicated fan of cachaca I was so happy to find this blog. Cachaca is probably the most underrated spirit in existence.
I recently posted a recipe for a cachaca mule (kind of like my take on a Moscow mule meets a caipirinha) on my blog. I think that cachaca really pairs well with ginger ale/beer. Check out my recipe at http://2ndgreatestgeneration.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/the-cachaca-mule-the-ultimate-summer-drink/

will have to remember this next year

I bought some 51 and have to say I am unimpressed. Smells and tastes like rubbing alcohol. I would never mix that with any of my good liqueurs. Hopefully some of the other styles are better. Btw, are you familiar with Cacique Guaro from Costa Rica? It is made with sugar cane too. It is very cheap. 51 is relatively expensive to a $4 liter of Cacique and I can't really say there is any difference in taste.

A friend just brought a bottle of Velho Barreiro to me from Brazil. I had not heard of this before even tho I'm a big fan of Guy Fieri.(and cocktails) ;-))
My friends have a name for my house "Rebecca's Garden and Drink Emporium". We sit on my deck and I serve all kinds of drinks to sample. Its a wonderful rejuvinating time!
We will definately try the drinks you have posted here at the next 'playdate'!! Everyone is SO excited already it will need to be soon.
I'll let you know how it turns out!
Thanks for the site it was EXACTLY what I was looking for!

Hey, Rebecca... Glad I could help. There are certainly plenty of recipes here to try out.

About Cachaçagora

  • Hi. My name is Phil Gomes. By day, I work at a public relations firm as its senior vice president of digital integration. I'm a proud SF East Bay native who currently lives in Chicago.

    I was introduced to cachaça by my wife, a Carioca. Her mom, in turn, is the president of the Confraria de Cachaça do Copo Furado, a group that meets monthly to talk about Brazil's indigenous spirit. I participated in one of their meetings when I vacationed in Rio in July 2008.

    This started me thinking about the basic question of whether cachaça in the U.S. is today where, say, tequila was some decades ago.

    So I decided to start this blog as a means to record and share the cachaça-related items I've been seeing day-to-day. I hope to be sharing recipes, impressions, and random thoughts as the U.S. continues to catch on to the potential for this particular spirit.

    Oh... The name? "Cachaçagora" is a portmanteau of "Cachaça" and "agora", which is the Portuguese word for "now". In Greek, "agora" also means public square. I hope to meet the expectations of both.
