Cocktail Amazonia

Celebrate with us the great Amazon rainforest with all of its wonders by drinking a cocktail made from its wild native ingredients.

For the alcohol part, we used cachaça; a typical spirit from Brazil made from fermented sugarcane juice.

For a herbal taste, we used jambu, a small plant that grows on the floor of this forest and its flower bud has a grassy taste followed by a strong tingling sensation with a cooling feeling in the throat.

For a fruity taste was used cupuaçu juice, a fruit from a tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest, and has a specific flavor, highly aromatic. The taste is described as a mixture of chocolate, pineapple, and bubble gum.

For the acidic notes of this cocktail, lime juice was used, a fruit of a tree that grows in the Brazilian region.
