If you like cachaça and its signature drink, the caipirinha, but you lament the fact that you lack the time or confidence in your mixing abilities to make your own, you’re going to be very happy to learn that there is now a pre-made version in a can—with a bubbly twist.
That’s right, not only is there a pre-mixed caipirinha, but it’s carbonated as well. Novo Fogo Sparkling Caipirinha, from the distillery that produces the cachaça brand of the same name, offers an approachable, portable means of experiencing Brazil’s national spirit and cocktail.
Novo Fogo handcrafts its spirits in small batches at its zero-waste distillery just meters from the edge of the Atlantic Rainforest in the southern state of Paraná. The purest representation of the local sugarcane, Novo Fogo’s Silver Cachaça is rested in stainless steel tanks, preserving the local terroir in its finished flavor to become the Sparkling Caipirinha’s base spirit.
The Sparkling Caipirinha in a can is available nationwide and online with a suggested retail price of $3.99 per can.
