Patos de Minas, Brazil (PRWEB) May 19, 2011
Welcome a steamy summer with a relaxing, cool Cachaça cocktail and say goodbye to drab, tired vodka, tequila, and whiskey staples of summers past.
Always warm, always breezy, Leblon brings the beaches of Rio to you! On the beach, at the pool, on a rooftop, or during the BBQ party of the year, Leblon Natural Cane Cachaça has come to samba America's summertime woes away with three of Brazil’s hottest cocktails:
- Leblon Caipirinha – 2 oz Leblon Cachaça, 2 tsp superfine sugar, ½ lime, cut into wedges
- Leblonade – 2 oz Leblon Cachaça, 2 lemon wheels, 5 torn mint leaves, top with lemonade
- Rio de Leblon – 2oz Leblon Cachaça, 3 slices of English cucumbers, 2 thin slices of jalapeno (seeds removed), 1 oz agave nectar
With lively, complex layers of flavor and an ultra smooth finish Leblon is also perfect alone, mixed with fruit juice, or as a sexy Brazilian twist to any cocktail. Leblon’s handcrafted Cachaça is the 2011 Double Gold Medal and “Best Cachaça” winner of San Francisco’s coveted World Spirits Competition.
Experience the difference this summer by joining the Leblon revolution and experience a noble, pure spirit that is anything but the typical, harsh industrial cachaça.
About Leblon Natural Cane Cachaça
Leading a Brazilian invasion worldwide with its amazingly delicious, finely distilled spirit, Leblon Natural Cane Cachaça (pronounced ka-SHA-sa) is already the favorite alambique Cachaça in top venues in Brazil, where it is the National Spirit. It is also the key ingredient to the Caipirinha (pronounced kai-pur-EEN-ya), the wildly popular, muddled lime cocktail and national treasure of Brazil. Winner of "Best Cachaça" a record three times, as well as an unprecedented six consecutive gold medals from 2006 to 2011 at San Francisco’s World Spirits Competition, Leblon is handcrafted and produced at the Maison Leblon in Minas Gerais, Brazil’s fertile agricultural heartland. Overseen by Gilles Merlet, one of the world’s preeminent Master Distillers, Leblon’s special quality is achieved with painstaking attention to every detail in the production process, from the cutting of the cane, fermentation, and distillation, to the filtering, blending, and resting in XO Cognac casks for up to six months. The result is a lively, fruity nose with complex layers of flavor and an ultra smooth finish that is perfect alone, mixed with fruit juice, in a traditional Caipirinha, or as a Brazilian twist to any cocktail. A leader in high-quality alambique Cachaça, Leblon is also leading the "Legalize Cachaça" campaign (http://www.legalizecachaca.com), a political movement to have Cachaça recognized in the U.S. as its own unique spirit and appellation from Brazil. In the U.S., Cachaça, the third most consumed spirit in the world, is incorrectly labeled as "Brazilian Rum," although it is characteristically very different than Rum. Leblon is available in all 50 U.S. States. For more information, visit http://www.leblon.com.
