Trancoso Local Customs: 2 reviews and 2 photos
If you go out at night in southern Bahia, and I don't doubt about it, :)), you will most probably encounter the region's most popular and traditional cocktail, Capeta. The key ingredients, cocoa powder and guarana powder, are powerful stimulans. Besides, Capeta's ingredients are considered to be aphrodisiacs and have been used for centuries by the native people of the Amazon region.
The recipe can vary from place to place but it goes something like this:
1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon of guarana powder or 2 tablespoons of guarana syrup
1 cup of condensed milk
3 cups of crushed ice
cachaca (local spirit made from sugar cane)
Mix all ingredients together in a blender and drink immediately. Serves two.
