Caipirinha Curiosities

  • An important fact for Caipirinha’s worldwide fame happend in 1993, when the president of the Brazilian Association of Bartenders (ABB) and Vice-President of the International Bartenders Association (IBA) at that time, Derivan de Souza, argued that the legitimately Brazilian cocktail should be part of the IBA Popular Cocktails list.


  • Apparently, the word Caipirinha was originated from the Tupi of “caipora” or “curupira”. Caipora means “inhabitant of the bush”. Curupira is a fantastic being, a devil who wanders in the forests.
