BRINGING BRAZIL TO YOU
Feel like you’re walking along the Copacabana—even if you’re just cruising around town with a café-longo or cooling out with a happy-hour caipirnha and bossa nova in the late afternoon sun. Step out in Havaianas and step into a Brazilian state of mind this summer wherever you are.
SIP A FRESH COCONUT

ORDER A CAFÉ-COM-LEITE
Seek out Brazil’s famous coffee and try chocolates sourced from Bahia and Pará for an ultra-authentic coffee break.
SAMBA A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AWAY
Find a local spot with live samba bands, order up a caipirinha pitcher, and dance the late afternoon away in your Havaianas.
SAVOR THE PERFECT CAIPIRINHA
Pick up fresh limes and a bottle of cachaça, and check out recipes online for delicious variations on Brazil’s national cocktail incorporating juices, like guava and passion fruit.

DISCOVER RODISIO-STYLE BBQ
Head to a local churrascarias to experience rodisio-style dining. Pay a prix-fixe, or preço fixo, and then enjoy ample serving of freshly grilled beef, pork, and chicken.
