I like a glass of something to sip on in the evening. I normally stop at one and this is what I drink most nights:Anyone else trying to watch their alcohol intake and having trouble deciding on their tipple for the day?
I have a so-so bottle of wine left and the whisky club just discovered the magic of online tastings and now can’t seem to stop doing them… and I have leftover samples from these tastings, in addition to my open bottles of whisky. Also a fridge full of craft beer.
So naturally I reached for my long-neglected, open bottle of cachaça. 45% ABV (relatively high for cachaça standards) and aged in virgin, toasted American oak. A bit of bite undiluted, just perfect diluted to 42-43%. Toffee, dried fruit and that whiff of cane juice… hard to beat on a rainy tropical “winter” night. No regrets.
(This is what it looked like when I bought it. Down to 1/3 now)

After experimenting a bit, I find I prefer it neat and room temperature.
