This artisanal beverage was crafted by expert mixologist David Rowe alongside the hotel’s talented Brasserie S&P bar team. This distinct cocktail consists of the fresh flavors of Brazil: cachaça, lime, sugar, and a homemade syrup infused with lemongrass, kaffir lime, and lemongrass — it tastes like a gold medal winner! Snatch one quick because it’s only available August 5 through August 21!

“In the spirit of competition and with all eyes on Brazil, Loews Hotels is celebrating the Rio games with a twist on the host country’s Caipirinha that reflects the distinctiveness of our destinations,” says Mark Weiss, Senior Vice President of Food & Beverage at Loews Hotels. “We’re excited to offer guests a chance to toast their favorite teams and competitors.”
