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.

"It's a refreshing cocktail that's meant for sipping while watching the Olympics. Most sports bars show the events and I wanted to pay homage to those venues by making a beer cocktail that beats the heat of summer days and plays up the flavors of Cachaça." - Pamela
Combine all ingredients, except the beer, in a tin with ice. Shake lightly and pour into a highball glass with ice. Top with beer and garnish with candied ginger and an orange slice.
