Texas de Brazil Chicago Toasts National Cachaça Day on September 13th with $5 Caipirinhas All Night Long!
In Brazil and around the world, September 13th is recognized as National Cachaça Day. Cachaça, the third-most consumed spirit on Earth, is made by distilling fresh sugarcane juice and pre-dates rum by hundreds of years. To celebrate, Texas de Brazil Churrascaria locations nationwide will feature $5 caipirinhas all night long on Wednesday, September 13. With just three simple ingredients, cachaça, lime, and sugar, this tangy, sweet and refreshing drink can be enjoyed at the bar and lounge area or during dinner.
“The caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail and a perfect complement to our authentic churrasco,” says Rodrigo Davila, director of wine and spirits for the family-owned Brazilian-American steakhouse brand. “This is a day that allows us to toast the culture of Southern Brazil while we welcome guests with the generous hospitality found in Texas,” he adds.
The classic caipirinha is a refreshing blend of lime, simple syrup, and cachaça, and guests can also choose additional flavors including Strawberry, Mango, Coconut and Passion Fruit at Texas de Brazil during dinner or at the bar and lounge area.
Those dining will begin their experience at an enticing 50-item salad area filled with freshly made dishes, both hot and cold including favorites such as lobster bisque and potatoes au gratin or pineapple carpaccio and vegetable couscous. The full rodizio-style menu also features up to 16 quality meats cooked the authentic Brazilian gaucho way --over open flame using natural wood charcoal resulting in deeper, more intense flavor and just the right amount of smokiness. Tempting selections such as succulent lamb chops, leg of lamb, picanha (sirloin), filet mignon, chicken breasts wrapped in bacon, Brazilian sausages and more are served by costumed gauchos, tableside. Guests pace the gaucho’s service with a simple flip of a red and green disc. Green indicates when additional servings are welcome while red indicates a break is needed. The appealing menu offers something to please everyone in the group.
