Cachaça and sherry are good friends in this simple and refreshing classic.
- 1.5 oz Novo Fogo Tanager Cachaça
- 1 oz Amontillado or Oloroso Sherry
- 0.25 oz lime juice
- 0.5 oz simple syrup
- Fresh berries and fruit to garnish
Shake the cachaça, sherry, lime juice, and simple syrup with ice. Strain into a Collins glass and fill with crushed ice. Pile a bunch of fresh berries or slices of seasonal fruit on top.
Our “Tanager” expression is the first two-woods cachaça broadly available in the USA and it mixes the Brazilian South’s two favorite woods. We age this cachaça in repurposed oak barrels and finish it in casks of arariba (Brazilian zebrawood) for a natural red color and a distinctive mountain earthiness. This truly unique cachaça suggests tropical fruit, grass, cinnamon bark, and other holiday spices; it can be sipped alone or as the base spirit in twists of classic cocktails like the Sazerac.
