DRUG gangs are using glamorous young women to smuggle cocaine into Britain hidden in a trendy drink.
Brazilian women in their 20s bring the near pure Class A drug into airports mixed with a 39 per cent tequila-like spirit, Ypióca Cachaça, says a Border Force memo seen by The Sun on Sunday.

The cocaine is mixed in with the 39 per cent spirit – which is the most popular in Brazil.
The drink can be bought online for £20.75.
Border Force officers at Heathrow Airport and others in the country have been “besieged” with this new method since the first lockdown restrictions were lifted.
A source said: “Lockdown at the start of last year hit the trade massively so they’ve had to get even more creative.
“A young woman pulling off a successful, glamorous image is less likely to arouse suspicion.”

“Despite lockdown, the demand is certainly still there. A young woman pulling off a successful, glamorous image is less likely to arouse suspicion.
“They’re using this rare spirit as the disguise. It’s a liqueur and is almost unheard of in Britain.”
