Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça | $33
Another great gateway bottle that will help you acquaint yourself with the unique flavors of cachaça, Novo Fogo Silver is as funky as it is vibrant and fresh. One whiff of this spirit reveals its true character—as you put the glass to your nose, you can literally smell the Brazilian soil in which the sugarcane was grown. The first sip reveals a symphony of tropicality, first with bursts of mango and overripe banana, and then with a touch of tart passionfruit. With a hint of salinity and an earthy, mushroomy funk on the finish, the spirit becomes almost savory as it leaves your palate. When it comes to making Brazil’s signature cocktail, the Caipirinha, there is simply no better spirit to use as the base.
