In honor of the 2016 summer games in Brazil, Rémy Martin has put a unique twist on the country's national cocktail: the Caipirinha. This refreshing cocktail is the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

0.75 oz Simple Syrup
6 wedges of Lemon

Since 1724, Rémy Martin has been led by artisans whose passion and expertise turned a small piece of French terroir into home to one of the world’s finest cognacs. Rémy Martin sources its grapes solely from the most sought after vineyards in the Cognac region, whose chalky soil ensures aromatic richness. Once distilled, these grapes become eaux-de-vie infused with a palette of rich and unique aromas—the heart of Rémy Martin’s collection of harmonious and complex cognacs.
This is a twist on a classic cocktail, the Sidecar. Cognac is replaced with a more rustic Armagnac, and Cointreau is replaced with Solerno blood orange liqueur. The resulting combination is tart and citrusy, yet balanced and rich, set off with a cinnamon-sugar rim.
