Rochinha Sazerac

By Jacques Bezuidenhout, San Francisco, California

  • 2 oz Rochinha 5-year ‘Single Barrel’ Cachaça
  • 3 dashes Peychauds Bitters
  • 1 dash Gary Reagans Orange Bitters
  • 2 tbsp simple syrup or granulated sugar
  • Splash of Absinto Camargo

Chill cocktail glass with ice and some Absinto. In a mixing glass add bitters and sugar and Rochinha. Stir with ice. Dump ice from cocktail glass but be sure there is a generous coating of Absinto left in the glass. Strain contents of mixing glass into cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Notes: The Rochinha makes a wonderful Sazerac. I like a dash of the orange bitters just to add a little bitterness as it may get a little sweet.

On New Year’s Eve, in Brazil, the natives celebrate by dressing in white and going to the beach to watch the fireworks. After midnight, they jump seven waves and throw flowers in the sea while making a wish. Some people also light candles in the sand on the beach. This is believed to bring good luck and fortune.

They say that the goddess who protects the sea (YEMANJÁ: Ye + omo + eja)
will make their wishes come true…

We encourage you to wear white.

We invite you to take part in our tradition…
