He has been in the service industry since 15, when he was serving coffee and beer in his home country of Portugal, and now has opened his own bar in Copenhagen called Curfew, that has been praised the world over. The Paulista shared the same name as the professional football league in Brazil, and is a cachaça-based drink with hints of both lavender and blueberries to create a modern gem.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ ounces of cachaça
  • 12 blueberries
  • ½ ounce of lavender syrup
  • ½ ounce of blueberry liqueur
  • ¾ ounce of lime juice
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Muddle the blueberries in the mixing glass, with the lavender syrup and blueberry liqueur.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients over ice in the cocktail shaker.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into a cocktail glass.

Equipment:

  • Muddling spoon
  • Mixing glass
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

Many people choose to strain into a martini glass specifically for the drink, and there are some who choose to rim the glass with lavender sugar, in that case. Of course, this might be too sweet for those who don’t want to be overwhelmed. After all, the base of the drink is cachaça, which is a spirit literally distilled from sugarcane juice. The drink is perfect for those who love blueberries, as it contains more blueberries than the vast majority of other cocktails. This might be too sweet for most, between the syrup and the cachaça, but could be heaven in a glass for those with a sweet-tooth. Whether you are celebrating Brazilian culture, love blueberries, or simply love modern cocktails crafted by a mixology star, enjoy a Pualista today!
