Brown Sugar Caipirinha. A refreshing drink that is sure to hit the spot.

Did I mention that my parents arrived a few weeks ago? Bringing with them a cleaning whirling dervish of activity, trips to the beach, the zoo, the swimming pool, the museum and a big bag of duty free 😉

Specifically some cachaça!!! Cachaça is a Brazilian spirit that is distilled from fresh cut sugar cane. I guess it is similar to a rum but with a more herbaceous flavour?

So when faced with cachaça there really was only one thing I could do…..make brown sugar caipirinha. Caipirinha is the national drink of brazil; lime, sugar, cachaça and plenty of crushed ice. So good – sweet, sour and strong!

I have used brown sugar as that is how I was taught to make them, it makes the colour a bit more interesting and gives you a nice hint of caramel.

If you want to get these going on over the weekend I thought I would share how to say them too 😉 because no one wants to walk into the bottle shop and say…”Oh I want some of this spirit but I don’t know how to say it”

So we have:

Cachaça – Ka-Shah-Ssss
Caipirinha – Kai-Pee-Reen-Ya

Although my cachaça came from duty free I have check both First Choice and Dan Murphys and they both stock cachaça. So you can be mixing up some caipirinha tomorrow. Why not serve it along side my simple Brazilian feast of Brazilian Beef Kebabs, Brazilian Style White Rice and Brazilian Tomato Salad. A simple meal that takes under an hour, so perfect for a little get together with friends. Especially if there are brown sugar caipirinhas involved.

    You’re making me miss Brasil so much! It’s the absolute best. I love that all of the bars and restaurants make their cocktails with the freshest fruit possible, especially those tasty, juicy limes in their Caipirinhas ?
