Cachaça and genever are not the easiest pairing, but in the right ratio, malty genever and oaky aged cachaça combine to create a near-whiskey flavor. Created by illustrator John Perry Yates for the 2014 World Cup third-place match between Brazil and the Netherlands, this Old-Fashioned style drink has shades of Jerry Thomas’s Improved Holland Gin Cocktail with its orange-y malt flavors. Maybe not the perfect cocktail, but good enough for third place.
