Leblon 

Cachaça, Brazil’s immensely popular national spirit, is similar to rum but is distilled from 100% sugar cane juice as opposed to molasses. “Cachaça is to Brazil what tequila is to Mexico,” says Steve Luttmann, the founder of Leblon, a major cachaça brand. Try the spirit in this frozen coconut drink, its creaminess providing a sweet counterpart to the spirit’s grassy notes.
