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.
We age our organic cachaça distillate in 53-gallon American oak bourbon barrels that have been taken apart, sanded, and re-toasted. The 2-3 year process takes place in the heat and humidity of our home in the Atlantic Rainforest. The result? Banana bread, with notes of chocolate, cinnamon bark, and coffee. Nuances of pepper remain, but the cachaça’s time spent in wood changes its spiciness from fresh red pepper to toasty black pepper.
