Episode 21: The Caipirinha feat. Luis Fernandes

This week, Meg had the pleasure to speaking to Luis Fernandes (owner of Labaredas Brazilian BBQ & Bar) about the history and influence of the national drink of Brazil: the Caipirinha. Topics include the drink’s ties to the 1918 pandemic, drinking culture in Brazil, and Meg butchering the pronunciation of cachaca and caipirinha at least a dozen times.
