At every stop we have reunited with friends and made new friends as we have shared our love of cocktails. For those of you online I wanted to share one of my favorites via my blog. I actually developed this one for California Strawberries. Being that strawberries are in their peek season it is the perfect timing to muddle up this caipirinha.
A caipirinha is very similar to a mojito, but instead of rum it is made with a Brazilian spirit called cachaça. I encourage you to give a try.
Strawberry and Passion Fruit Caipirinha
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- 10 strawberries, sliced
- 12 mint leaves
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 cup coconut juice
- 1 passion fruit, halved
- 3 ounces cachaça
- 4 ounces club soda, chilled
- Crushed ice
- Divide lime wedges, strawberries, mint leaves, and sugar between 2 glasses and muddle.
- Add coconut juice and scoop the passion fruit pulp with seeds into the glasses. Add cachaça and top off with club soda, ice, and stir.
