2. Academia da Cachaca
Fillet steak and two Caipirinhas, por favour
What do you get when you cross two of Brazil’s favourite things? The Academia da Cachaca. Famed as a restaurant serving the finest cuts of beef, the academy is also peerless when it comes to the country’s cocktail of choice, Caipirinhas! Tuck into shredded beef with cassava cream purée and wash it down with the famed white rum sour made with crushed sugar and limes. And boy, do they know their stuff. This place has over 2,000 types of white rum!
