OUT WITH LEO IS OUT!

Caipirinha (Portuguese pronunciation: [kajpiˈɾĩj̃ɐ]) is Brazil‘s national cocktail, made with cachaça (pronounced: [kaˈʃasɐ]) (sugarcane hard liquor), sugar and lime.[2] Cachaça, also known as pinga, caninha, or any one of a multitude of traditional names, is Brazil’s most common distilled alcoholic beverage. Although both rum and cachaça are made from sugarcane-derived products, in cachaça the alcohol results from the fermentation of fresh sugarcane juice that is then distilled, while rum is usually made from refinery by-products such as molasses.[3]

The drink is prepared by muddling the fruit and the sugar together, and adding the liquor. This can be made into a single glass, usually large, that can be shared amongst people, or into a larger jar, from where it is served in individual glasses.

Leopold loves Carmen Miranda!

A little homage for our great and unique Brazilian Artist, the phenomenal Carmen Miranda, our pride and joy.

Every time that I am homesick, I bring the Carmen’s tropicalia realm into my life. I comforts me.

Rio Miranda

Carmen also brought relief in the 40’s to all the American people while the war was being wrapped. Everyone wanted to go to Rio after falling in love with Carmen’s performance and wildly colorful South American world.

Thank you Carmen Miranda!
