How do you drink cachaça?
The only hard rule is that cachaça cannot be consumed quickly. You don’t down a shot of cachaça in one gulp. Good cachaça is meant to be sipped and appreciated, whether on its own or in a cocktail.
Other than that, there is no right or wrong way to prepare cachaça for consumption. It really depends on your tastes.
On its own, cachaça can be consumed neat, on ice, or with the addition of a bit of water to open its palate and nose. You may prefer to chill some types of cachaça in the refrigerator, or even your freezer. And don’t worry, your cachaça won’t ever turn into a solid block of ice.
You may want to consume your cachaça from a nice ISO glass if you can. That way you can really have the full sensory experience, and not miss out on a single aspect of what you’re consuming.
