Discover this amazing Brazilian cocktail... with a twist!
Caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brasil (Brazil), is a wonderful and refreshing libation made with limes, cachaça, and sugar cane.
Cachaçha, a distilled sugar cane alcohol, is the main ingredient for Caipirinha. It is clear and has a very distinctive flavor. Kind of reminds me of a vodka and grappa but smoother. I found it to be a perfect match for fruit based cocktails.
Caipirihna with fruit is called "caipifruta". Some of the fruits used to make caipifruta are strawberries, mango, pineapple, and kiwi. Although the possibilities are endless.
