Essential

  • TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 1

“The Essential is a great balance between citrusy and creamy, with a beautiful aroma of flowers and sugarcane,” says Elad Zvi. “In a perfect world, I would like to drink it on some crazy night in Rio de Janeiro.” The cocktail is best made with a milder young Brazilian cachaça, one that’s aged for no more than six months.
