Brazilian cocktails in Brooklyn

Image 1 of 2

Cachaça captures the spirit of Brazil in a bottle. Distilled from sugar cane juice, it blends beautifully with fresh fruit. We found a bar that is serving up a taste of Rio in Brooklyn.

We hung out with Ivy Mix, the owner of Leyenda Brooklyn Cocterleria in Cobble Hill. She showed us how to make some of her favorite Brazilian cocktails. She said that the caipirinha is definitely Brazil's drink. She demonstrated a few ways to make one.

Leyenda is located at 221 Smith Street.
