Fill Boston shaker with ice. Add all ingredients to shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled cocktail glass and add cinnamon stick garnish. The drink will be rich and thick and flavorful.
Açaí (ah-sah-eee) is a small fruit from the Açaí palm tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest. It tastes like a mixture of berries and chocolate. It has become extremely popular with Cariocas in Rio de Janeiro, and especially with the surfers. Usually made into a smoothie with guarana at the local juice shop by the beach or served in a bowl with fruits for breakfast. It is very thick and has an interesting texture and flavor.
“A Surfista” (ah surf-eesta) means “the surfer” in Portuguese
I made this for a 10 Cane Rum competition a couple years ago.
It is a nice creamy, almost chocolaty, cocktail
