Can anyone recommend a decent Cachaca? I love the stuff, but I have no idea which brand to buy at the store to make caiprinhas. I know from an acquaintance that most of the stuff here sucks in comparison to what is available in Brazil, but its not like I can do anything about that. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

I'm here to help!

There are hundreds of brands of Cachaças, so it's hard to give advice because I don't know what's available to you.

Probably the most common is 51, which is pretty cheap-o in Brazil.

The general rule is that the clear Cachaça is for mixing, and the amber is for drinking straight.

Good luck to you. I was in Brazil a short two weeks ago, and I drank my fill of Caipirinhas everywhere I went. I even brought home a bunch of Cachaça, but I haven't even cracked it. It just isn't the same drinking it without my Brazilian friends.

You gotta tell me all about it. Send me an Email, or something.
