Brazilian Old Fashioned

Brazilian Old Fashioned #24

Swiss-born Stefan Frei wears #24 when he’s on the soccer field, and he stirs up this Brazilian Old Fashioned cocktail to conjure the flavors of Brazil and Switzerland. 

  • 2 oz Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Cachaça
  • 0.5 oz honey syrup
  • 2 dashes of Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters

Add the honey syrup to the bottom of a rocks glass glass, then add cachaça and the bitters. Fill the glass with ice and stir until chilled, and top with more ice. Garnish with a twist of orange peel and a fancy cherry.

Novo Fogo Barrel Aged Cachaça bottle

Barrel-Aged Cachaça

This aged spirit bakes the banana notes from the un-aged cachaça in 53-gallon American oak barrels that have been taken apart, sanded, and re-toasted. The heat and humidity of the rainforest changes the spirit to the flavors of banana bread, with notes of chocolate, cinnamon bark, coffee, and black pepper.
