Cachaca is a distilled spirit made from the juice of sugar cane. It is pronounced Kah-SHAH-sah. People often think it is a type of rum, even though it is only made in Brazil. Cachaca, Brazil’s national spirit, and the caipirinha, its most famous cocktail, were the most popular drinks for a long time. Cachaca often sells more than gin or Tequila, but almost all of it is drunk by Brazilians.
