  1. the beleza pura pre-made caipirinha is the best pre-made cocktail i've ever tried. that's not saying much though, as most of them are terrible. i don't think the technology to replicate the flavor and aroma of freshly squeezed juice exists yet. making drinks can be a pain, so if you're feeling lazy i think this stuff is acceptable. it has good acidity and isn't too sweet and beleza pura is a good cachaca.

      thanks, warrenr! i frequently feel lazy, so i may give this a try.

    2. Yeah it's great... the regular Beleza Pura cachaca is also a great smooth product if you want to make your own caipirinhas.

      1. I first saw Beleza Pura Cachaca in a Brazilian cuisine segment on NBC's Today Show. I tried it & found it to be one of the best Cachacas I've had. Then, I found out they offer the ready-made Caipirinha... oh man -- excellent flavor with ZERO work. I add ice & a mint leaf & my friends think I've created the best cocktail they've tasted.

        1. Any one know where I can buy the pre-made caipirinha in NYC?
