Oh to be in Bahia, hypnotized by the incessant beat of the drums, dancing under the stars with a caipirinha in our hand. Sadly, we are here, instead. At least we have Bahiana, which lets us dream of hot Brazilian nights. A brilliant burst of sharp citrus fuses with exotic deep woods and coconut to create a fruity blend that is more dry than sweet. It reminds us of pineapple – not drenched with syrup, but freshly cut, with a startling trace of green. As vivid as a caipirinha, and almost as intoxicating.
