World Cup 2014: How to make Brazil's most famous cocktail

10 June 2014 Last updated at 00:06 BST

With just days to go until the World Cup kicks off in Brazil, the BBC has been getting to know some of the local people.

Thiago Firmino is a guide who runs the Santa Marta favela tour, showing visitors around the community where he grew up.

Thiago embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of Brazil with his can-do attitude, referred to locally as "jeito", and does up to three tours a day.

He also takes groups to his home, where he teaches them to make Brazil's most famous cocktail - the Caipirinha.

Jon Sopel went along for a masterclass.
