Similar to rum, cachaça is a spirit made from sugar cane; however, cachaça is produced in Brazil. Use it to make this tasty daiquiri alternative. The coconut and cacao perfectly complement the cachaça and will remind you of a Mounds bar. Serve cold over ice with cocoa powder for added aroma and texture.


  • Cocoa powder
  • 2 ounces cachaça (we like <a href=”” target=”_blank”>Cachaça 51</a>)
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce crème de cacao
  • 2 ounces coconut milk


  1. Rim a rocks glass with cocoa powder. Fill glass with ice. Combine remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Strain into prepared glass.
