Abelha recipes from around the web

Thought I’d take a moment to show some of the amazing things that cocktail bloggers have been up to with Abelha. First up is Jay from Oh Gosh, with this take on an Old Fashioned using lemongrass syrup and Abelha Gold:

Nova Abelha

* 2 shots / 60 ml / 2 oz Abelha Gold
* ⅓ shot / 10 ml / ⅓ oz lemon grass syrup
* ¼ shot / 7.5 ml / ¼ oz Falernum
* 2 dashes TBT Lemon bitters

Stir all ingredients thoroughly with ice. Strain in to an ice-filled old-fashioned and garnish with a lemon zest twist.
The cachaça and lemon grass syrup play together nicely rounding out the spirit and creating an interesting lightly aromatic drink. The falernum adds a touch of brightness to the drink and the lemon bitters round the flavours out nicely. Depending on your syrup and falernum you will need to watch the sweetness, but if the balance is right this is quite an enjoyable sipper.

Tiare from A Mountain of Crushed Ice in Sweden said:

…really nice and smooth – with a hint of honey, sugarcane and grass. A hint of the typical earthy flavour is there as well to remind you that this is cachaca. I can safely say this is the best I have tasted as far as cachacas go…

Bahia Rose (Rosa da Bahia)

* 2 oz Abelha Cachaca Silver
* 1 oz Aperol
* 1 oz fresh ruby grapefruit
* 0.5 oz fresh lime
* 0.5 oz simple syrup.

Shake and pour in saucer type of glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a grapefruit rose and add two straws.

Last but not least – I have got to get up to Edinburgh before too long, as there seem to be are a plethora of excellent bars and bartenders there. Jon from The Old Town Alchemy Co – great name for a cocktail blog, was also impressed by Abelha and came up with this simple yet delicious (I can say this now I have tried it) take on a daquiri using a little maraschino.

…I was completely blown away by the Silver. On the nose it has those familiar vegetal notes that come with cachacas and rhums agricole, but it also has a pleasant honey scent with a touch of citrus to it. The mouth feel is great – a slightly viscous texture, with a strong finish but without chemical burn of column-still spirit.


50ml Abelha Silver Cachaca
25ml freshly squeezed lime juice
10ml sugar cane syrup
1 barspoon Maraschino
Shake all ingredients with ice and fine-strain into a chilled martini/coupette glass. Twist a lime zest over the top and discard. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.

Cheers guys!
