RECIPE: British Berries + Latin Flavor = Raspberry Caipirinha
The English summer arrives and along comes the summer British berries.. one of my favorite: Raspberries.. And, as I luckily, have quite a few growing in the Allotment, I am left wondering what to do with them, always trying to add a little Latin flavor to it.
And nothing more refreshing for summer than a cold drink... specially if its a cocktail!... well I do truly love cocktails! Therefore I made this Raspberry Caipirinha... using Cachaça from Brazil.
Cocktail Ingredients :
3/4 fresh lime cut into wedges
8 fresh raspberries
2 shots of Cachaça ( I used Sagatiba )
3/4 shots of sugar syrup / or 2 tablespoons of Caster sugar
Muddle lime and raspberries in the base of the glass, add the sugar, muddle well, fill the glass with crushed ice, then add the Cachaça and stir well. Garnish with a raspberry !
And enjoy !
