A distilled spirit made from sugar cane, cachaça is a popular drink in Brazil, where it's drunk straight as well as mixed into a variety of cocktails—the most well-known being the classic Caipirinha. Unaged, its taste is somewhere between rum and tequila; aged, it takes on a complex flavor than can vary from woodsy to vanilla-like to floral. Avuà Amburana—a cachaça aged in barrels made from amburana wood—adds a warm depth to this fruity drink from Manhattan bar Milk & Honey. You can also use unaged cachaça or light rum, if you prefer.
