A New Cocktail: The Cachaça Fizz

A New Cocktail: The Cachaça Fizz

In the annals of cachaça lore, there are really two main cocktails: the caipirinha and the rabo de galo. Both of these cocktails are wonderful. I cannot speak about them highly enough. However, I have encountered a new cocktail, thanks to several of my wonderful bartender friends, Hugo and Washington, that has me clicking my heels.

The Cachaça Fizz is a refreshing, yet simple cocktail. For those of you who love the caipirinha, but don’t love muddling limes and sugar, this might be the cocktail for you. Yes, if you think cachaça fizz sounds like gin fizz, you’d be right. But this recipe is even simpler. No eggs involved. However, if you’ve got a cocktail shaker, this would be a great time to use it. This cocktail is best served in a tall glass.

The Cachaça Fizz

  • 30 ml fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons of sugar (if you prefer sweeter cocktails, I suggest adding more. However, 4 teaspoons will make the cocktail balanced)
  • 50 ml (one shot) of Cachacier’s Jequitiba
  • 10 ml Sparkling water
  • Ice

Combine lime juice and sugar over ice in the cocktail shaker. Add the cachaça. Close the cocktail shaker and shake it up for about thirty seconds. Your glass should already be filled with ice, preferably crushed. Pour shaker contents through your Hawthorne strainer into the glass. Top off the contents with the sparkling water, then stir the cocktail. Garish with lime or mint.

My friends, I have few doubts that this will become your new favorite summer cocktail. It’s easy to make for a small group or even for a larger event if you need to prepare beforehand. Try this out and let me know what you think in the comments!
