As Earth Day on April 22d draws closer, many industries are joining the cause of safeguarding our planet. The wine and spirits industry is not an exception. Novo Fogo Cachaça, for example, makes great efforts to invest in the planet and embrace the spirit of Earth Day.
Novo Fogo Cachaça is an exceptional, award-winning cachaça produced in small batches at a zero-waste distillery on the edge of the Brazilian rainforest. Its line of cachaças includes Novo Fogo Bar Strength Silver Cachaça, the first carbon-neutral product on the market. Each bottle is made from recycled glass and the neck wrap is repurposed from plastic collected from the streets of São Paulo, Brazil. The advocate for a more sustainable spirits industry, the company is proud of its legacy reforestation project, The Un-Endangered Forest, which seeks to restore 36 species of native Brazilian trees from the threatened list.
Known as rum’s older cousin, cachaça, is the national spirit of Brazil and a main ingredient in the country’s national cocktail, the Caipirinha. This Earth Month, cocktail enthusiasts should raise a glass to eco-conscious spirits brands like Novo Fogo that are making an impact all year long.
- 2 oz Novo Fogo Fogo Silver or Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Cachaça

Remove the width pith from the lime and discard it. Cut the remaining lime in slices; toss them into the glass. Muddle them with sugar in the glass. Fill the glass with ice. Add cachaça and pour everything into a shaker. Shake and pour everything (including the ice) back into the same glass.
