A recipe card detailing history and recipes for the Caipirinha and Lavarello cocktails.


caipirinha cocktailCaipirinha

  • 40ml Yagaura Cachaça
  • 3/4 of a fresh lime (cut into wedges)
  • 20ml Sugar syrup (2:1 ratio)
  • Garnish – lime wedge

Muddle the lime wedges and sugar in a glass then pour over the cachaça and pack with ice. Churn and stir with a bar spoon. Garnish with a  fresh lime slice.

For a twist on the classic and a more herbal affair – add 10ml of Green Chartreuse and you’ll have whats called a ‘Monk in a Bikini’


A Cachaça Negroni! This uses a bitter aperitivo (e.g Aperol) in place of Campari for a sweeter, softer bitterness, and Cynar, which is made from artichokes, in place of sweet red vermouth. The blend of earthy vegetal flavours with bittersweet Aperal is truly delicious. For a lighter more summery option you can top it up with soda.

Stir all the ingredients with ice in a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
