“This drink is like a crazy, tropical French 75,” says Chicago-based mixologist Alex Renshaw. He replaces the gin in the classic with cachaça and Chareau, an aloe vera liqueur with a minty, cucumber taste.

How to Make It


In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cantaloupe. Add the cachaça, lemon juice, Simple Syrup, aloe vera liqueur and bitters. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled flute and top with the Prosecco. Clap the mint leaf between your hands over the cocktail to release the essential oils and add to the glass.
