Cachaça is a Brazilian spirit made from sugar cane, and therefore is similar in nature to a rum, or more correctly a rhum agricole. While not as popular a cocktail ingredient as rum it still holds a lot of potential. I created the "Festa" to try to represent a relaxing and refreshing Spring cocktail, but with enough flavor components to make it interesting as well.
2 oz Cachaça
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz raspberry syrup
1/2 oz Domaine de Canton ginger liquer
dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Shake with ice.
Strain into rocks glass filled with ice.
Top with soda.
