Cocktails Served at Ipanema Beach during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In Rio, drinking alcohol is an intricate – some would say essential – part of Carnival. The beverage of choice is beer. Over 25 million gallons of brew are consumed during the festivities. Another favorite is a Brazilian rum called cachaça. Along the two famous beaches – Copacabana and Ipanema – bar servers will approach you with the cocktail of the day. Libation convenience rarely gets better and easier.
