By Scott Adams, Midday Host on The Sounds of Brazil
Rio de Janeiro is a busy city these days. With less than six weeks to go before the Olympic torch ignites the Summer Games of 2016, there is activity everywhere: New construction, updates and improvements. What was old is becoming new again as the city brightens its profile for the world stage.

It's no surprise that Brazilian sugarcane growers wasted no time in distilling the harvest; the potent libation helped ward off the ever-present heat and humidity, and the wretched work of carving out a life in the New World. So, go ahead. Take a sip.
 

 
Most countries have one or two signature beverages that are world famous: Irish whiskey, German beer, Italian reds.  Brazil has its own entry in this crowded international field. It’s a clear fragrant rum di ...

Days after he left Chicago’s City Winery stage, Sergio Mendes was flying south to a Ri ...
