Reach for something a little Brazilian tonight to mark Rio's success in bringing the Olympic Games to South America for the first-time ever. Pay tribute to the country that has given us everything from carnival, to coffee, to Gisele Bunchen (enough said), and - most importantly - Acai, the anti-oxidant rich super fruit that keeps us healthy - by mixing up or ordering a Brazilian Rickey.
VeeV is the world's first Acai spirit, offering up 50% more antioxidants than a pomegranate, making it a healthier way to drink. Reach for a Brazilian Rickey or Rainforest on the Rocks at some of the nation's top style bars, including Miss Favela (Brooklyn, NY), Botequim Carioca (Downtown Miami), Kravings (L.A.), The Londoner (Dallas), and Wang's In the Desert (Palm Springs).
And the best bit? Not only the cocktails are exceedingly good, but you're doing some good while indulging them: $1 per bottle sold goes back to the preservation of the Brazilian Rainforest.
So for the day that Rio won gold, raise your glass to everything that's great about Brazil. Saude (Cheers in Portuguese)!Brazilian Rickey
