the roster of supporting ingredients and ways to enjoy cachaça have expanded, but the lively and fresh vibes largely aren’t budging.

Here’s a sneak peek:
When done right, a tiki drink is just about the tastiest way to tap into the far-out vibes of an idyllic island escape. And who better to lead this tour to daring destinations than the Caribbean connoisseur Shannon Mustipher? This original blend of hers begins with a new slick beach body for cachaça by way of a coconut oil fat wash, and from there, the hot-weather hits keep on coming: pineapple juice, a cordial inspired by tiki idol Donn Beach’s citrus and spices mixture known as Don’s Mix (a legendary, essential ingredient of many tiki drinks, including the original 1934 zombie recipe), and a splash of sharp and malty beer vinegar. Smell the sea air, grab a chair, and keep the sand out of your underwear when the Wavy Colada surfs over to your doorstep!
After hours of catching rays, people watching, and getting to know your trusty beach vendors, you’ll look ahead to a night out on the town, pour this cocktail, and ask yourself, was it all just an Ipanema Daydream? Served elegantly up by Christopher Longoria, this coupe satisfies cachaça’s call for verdant companions with a dynamic jalapeño-mint-lime cordial and pops of celery seed salt on top, and keeps the summer reverie rolling with cooling watermelon juice. Think of this light and lustrous blend like your trendiest piece of day-to-night transition wear, brilliantly beaming along with the sun and perfectly suiting a sassy scene after it sets.
This old fashioned scores big thanks to a collaboration befitting of Brazil, the country with the most World Cup titles. The play-by-play is as follows: cachaça lover and Major League Soccer goalkeeper Stefan Frei brainstorms a bevy of potential tea elements to complement the spirit and passes it off to fellow Seattleite Adam Way, who applies his cocktail know-how to turn it into a reality. The resulting aromatic Give and Go fields a team of first flush Darjeeling syrup and Earl Grey and chai bitters to showcase the mellow and earthy side of cachaça for a truly trophy-worthy summer night sipper!
