Caipirinha:

Refreshing, tart and sweet, the Caipirinha is no stranger to American bar menus, but it’s roots are in Brazil, where its the national cocktail. Fixed with cachaca, a Brazilian rum made from sugarcane juice, caipirinhas are often made with just lime, but they can be modified to include different fruits, like orange, plum and melon.

Açaí:

Rich in antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, the purple fruit is native to Central and South America. After purchasing unsweetened frozen acai puree in the freezer aisle, blend it together with banana, blueberries and honey for a traditional Acai Breakfast Bowl that can be dolled up with all kinds of toppings.
