Raspberry Brazilian Cocktail

Try a Caipirinha, a cocktail native to Brazil. Make it your own by adding fruit like raspberries.

Raspberry Brazilian Cocktail-caipirinha-3

I love caipirinhas. They are Brazilian in nature and really close to a mojito if you’ve never had one, but have more of a kick. They typically don’t have fruit in them; it’s usually lime juice and sometimes you’ll see a sprig of mint for garnish, but I had some extra fruit lying around plus they taste amazing with fresh muddled fruit.

I used raspberries, but you could easily try strawberries, blueberries, or even peaches.

While some drinks can be made in larger batches, caipirinhas are best made up individually each time. A little work, but well worth it!
