Brazilian-themed cocktail Kaffirinha

What to Drink

The Brazilian-inspired cocktails are dressed to impress. Try the Batida de Mango, an updated classic where mango and passion fruit are churned through ice and spiked with Abelha cachaça and Benedictine liqueur. Or opt for the Kaffirinha, Sushisamba‘s take on a Brazilian classic, with fragrant Kaffir lime leaves infused in Abelha cachaça, churned with lime and sugar. Served short over crushed ice.
