  • Jenipapo is a fruit found in the Amazon rainforest. In Guarani, Jenipapo means "fruit that is used to paint", a reference to its being used for body painting by the native peoples of Brasil.
  • Jenipapo fruit is also used by Haroldo Narciso of Famigerada Distillery in São Paulo city to produce Jeni liquor.
  • The Jeni liquor is sent to the bartender Marcelo Serrano who uses it to make a Jenipapo foam to finish this version of Moscow Mule with Jenipapo foam in place of ginger beer.
  • Haroldo Narciso and Marcelo Serrano are working together to help people from the Paraisópolis favela by providing a FREE bartending course. Haroldo sets aside part of the profits from the sale of Jeni liquor to promote the course, including uniforms, bar tools and a drink book. Today more than 70% of those who have attended the course already have a job.
