5 Cocktails to celebrate international cachaça day!

My family pretty much grew up on sangria and margaritas, which is probably why those two always say "summer cocktail" to me. Until, that is, I tasted my very first cachaça cocktail.

One of my best friends in college, whose mom is Brazilian, made me a caipirinha one day—and I was in love. It's a drink similar to a Cuban mojito (another one of my favorites), but without the mint. The special thing about the cachaça liquor is that it's made from fermented sugarcane juice and quite different. In the end, though, who cares about all that? What I really care about is how delicious it tastes in these cocktails! Since today is International Cachaça Day, come and celebrate with me by making one of the great drinks, below.
