Very soon, the pubs around London will be full of watchers of the Beautiful Game. And I will be having a Beautiful Drink.
I am missing my old ‘hood, just North of South Beach, Miami, and East of the mainland. Home to thousands of Brazilians, where I could get a fantastic piece of steak smeared with lime, olive oil and garlic, some form of cassava, and one of these lovelies pretty easily. . . the caipirinha.
They go down pretty easily, if memory serves me correctly. I think I will embark on a search for some good Cachaça in London. Would appreciate any tips.
And cheers to Rio. Here’s hoping the Brazilians get a decent shake out of lending their country to the world for a few weeks.
If you want to try making one yourself, I recommend Juliana Guimarães’s blog, “Brazil with Z.”
