In honor of the Summer Olympics in Rio, Distiller, a spirits recommendation app, and Domaine de Canton French Ginger Liqueur, have teamed up with eight of New York and Texas' top bartenders to create cocktails with Brazil's national spirit, Cachaça.

This Cachaça cocktail recipe goes well beyond the classic Caipirinha, just see for yourself.

"Banana is one of the most popular fruits of Brazil and it's delicious. Brazil has many different types of bananas, including the Banana Caturra. Its inside is more yellow and creamy than the others. It's used to make banana candy and it works perfectly with Cachaça, the national spirit of Brazil. What could be better than this cocktail to celebrate the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio."- Orson

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
