The Paulista is a delightful blend of lavender and blueberries with a great cachaça for a base. It was created by Humberto Marques, who focuses his cocktails on fresh and premium ingredients.

To make this drink, you can either make your own lavender-infused simple syrup or use one of the pre-bottled brands like Sonoma.
