Wooooah-ho-ho, y’all. Tiki The Snow Away + Yaguara Cachaça = a whole new world of tropical flavor! And this is my first ever Cachaça post! MAGICAL DREAMS DO COME TRUUUUE.
If you want to share a tropical drink during the month of January, use the hashtag #TikiTheSnowAway on Instagram and Twitter, or tag u/homebargirl on reddit.
I’ve tasted Cachaça before, had a Caipirinha or two, but I’ve never been truly excited about this spirit until now. Yaguara is by far the best, smoothest, and tastiest of Cachaças with notes of Banana, Strawberry, Coconut, a bit of grassy funk, and a whole lot of YASSSS GURRRRL.
It’s divine and I’m putting it in everything I possibly can, including the following drink.
Pearly, sensuous, giant mint hat.
Here are your cast of characters: Yaguara Cachaça, Grand Marnier, Orgeat, Lemon Juice.
- 1 1/2 oz Yaguara Cachaça
- 1/2 oz Grand Marnier*
- 3/4 oz Orgeat**
- 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
- Garnish: the biggest Mint bouquet of all time
Combine ingredients over ice and shake like a rocket. Strain into double Rocks glass over crushed ice. Garnish with the biggest Mint bouquet of all time.
*Magically enough, dry Curaçao works just as well at 1/2 oz.
**Every Orgeat is different, some sweeter, some more dry, adjust accordingly.
Cheers! May all your Tiki The Snow Away drinks be sensational and may you enjoy Yaguara Cachaça as much as I am.
