Where do I purchase cachaça?

And is there a specific brand I should purchase or stay away from? Also, if you have a great caipirinha recipe you'd be nice enough to share, that would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

    1. I believe I saw it at Wally's just before Thanksgiving, and it's listed on their Web site: . Hint: to find cachaça online you often have to change the spelling to cachaca.

      1. I've bought it at the BevMo, specifically the one in West Hollywood. I've used Pitu for caipirinhas, and it's perfectly fine.

        I made these non-traditional "Christmas caipirinhas" for two parties last year and they were very well received.

        1. All BevMo's carry it. I like the Leblon brand.

          1. Also, Top Line in Glendale/Loz Feliz area has it, and their prices are great.
