Delta One and SkyMiles Elite customers traveling through Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport and Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, can now enjoy a refreshing on-the-ground experience in GOL’s premium lounges.

GOL, Delta’s Brazilian alliance partner, will offer a selection of six exclusive drinks at its four VIP airport lounge locations. Each drink was created by renowned bartenders from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, bringing a taste of each city to the airport itself.

“We are continuously looking for ways to delight our customers and featuring new mixology takes our game to the next level offering a unique taste of Brazil at GOL’s VIP lounges, said Mauricio Parise, GOL’s Managing Director – Marketing. “GOL VIP lounges have been recently renovated both in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and offer complementary specialty menu as well as other premium beverages including the beloved Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail.”

At GRU in Sao Paulo, customers can enjoy an “Embarque Autorizado” (“authorized boarding,” in Portuguese), “Sky Fizz” or “Orange Sky,” developed by Alexandre D’Agostino, a leading bartender at Apothek—one of 2017’s best cocktails bars in the city.
