Brazil has a national cocktail and it's called the caipirinha. Made with cachaca, a spirit that, like rum, is derived from sugarcane, the caipirinha is as synonymous with Brazil as the mint julep is with Louisville, or the Manhattan is with the New York City borough. Rhumbar's take mixes Leblon cachaca with strawberries, lime and cane sugar, then tops it all off with lime espuma - or as you might refer to it after three or four strawberry caipirinhas, the tasty, foamy stuff.
