What you'll do

Welcome to this online experience hosted from Rio de Janeiro city to you!
OBS: DURING THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY I WILL TELL SOME STORIES ABOUT THE MOST FAMOUS CARNAVAL OF THE WORLD.
BRING YOUR COSTUME OR A FUN ACCESSORY

First of all, don’t worry... Caipirinhas are super easy to prepare!

In the first 30 minutes, I will teach you how to make the most traditional brazilian drink with simple ingredientes and utensils that you can get wherever you are in the world.
The traditional caipirinha is made with lime, sugar, ice and Cachaça – a brazilian spirit made from sugar cane – and of course some love and caring.
But we don´t need to stick with the traditional, right?
So we will also make the caipifrutas with different fruits, like strawberries, passionfruit, tangerine, pineapple, grapes kiwis or starfruits.

By the way:
Non Alcohool version also available.
and
If you cannot find Cachaça you can easily replace it for the Vodka.

In the last 30 minutes I will tell you stories about Rio, some curiosities, funny facts and some ideas for your trip to Rio that you may never imagine out of the beaten track. I will show you some of our life style, dress codes, hiking experiences, daytrips, museums, beaches and some secret spots that will make you wanna visit Rio tomorrow.

Be my guest!

IDEAL FOR CORPORATE GROUPS, TEAM BUILDING, CELEBRATIONS & PRIVATE GROUPS!

Hi everyone!! I am Alessandra.
100% Carioca - born and raised in the beautiful city of Rio

I'm a certified tour guide specialized in Outdoors Activities, doing hiking and trekking expeditions around the city and state of Rio.
But I also offer Caipirinhas workshops for teams on corporate events and for tourists groups in presence.

This story leads me back to Barcelona where I worked as a waitress in a cocktail bar – yes... just like the song.
Young and full of energy, I rolled my sleeves up and learned how to make Caipirinhas because most clientes would expect the brazilian (me) to make it, and why not? So... not only I learnt but I also developed some special recepis and end up staying 6 years in that bar.

I am happy to to join both activities and share with you some of our local stories, with silly jokes & some entertainment!
See you!

We did this event as a team happy hour for work, and Ali was fantastic! The drinks were delish (I went with the mocktail version) and I can't wait to make more!

My work team and I participated in Alli’s Caiprinha event as a virtual happy hour activity and really enjoyed it. Alli was great! She brought so much energy, storytelling and fun. I recommend this as a great way to learn more about Brazilian culture. I hope to visit one day and do her tours in person!

Such an amazing experience. We really enjoyed our time making Caiprinhias and getting to know a lot about Rio and the carnival over there.

The follow feedback is consolidated from several attendees! Ale (the host) was incredibly friendly and fun. She taught me a lot about the history of Carnival and Cachaca! Loved all the energy and learned a lot about Carnival!! Super fun! Alli was such a fun host! She had her background set up in such a festive way, it would brighten up anyone's day. I loved how she explained the process of making caipirinhas very comprehensively and even had cameras set up at different angle so we could get a good view of her kitchen table. There was a little surprise at the end that I truly appreciated too. No spoilers! P.S. The caipirinhas were AMAZING! She also provided instructions for those who wanted to make the mocktail version, which I appreciated it. Ali has so much energy and knowledge about Rio - she's a really fun host. Caipirinhas are really easy to make, but she made it so fun it's worth it just to hang out with her for an hour.

The session was fabulous! It was just what we needed to deal with lockdown boredom and Ali made it really special for us as we were celebrating a friend's birthday. She listened to us and engaged with us so well that she quickly felt like part of the group. We enjoyed her stories and she was also really patient with us. She made it entertaining and the cocktails were fabulous! Can't wait to make another caiprinha! Or come to Rio!
