With the New Year ahead of us, we’re getting excited about exploring our cocktail options. 2014 is going to be a year for branching out and trying spirits that we haven’t experimented with yet. First on our list: cachaca. What made cachaca so famous? The Caipirinha. Try this cocktail for a refreshing change from your mojito or margarita.
2 oz. Cachaca
Half a lime
2 tsp. sugar or .5 oz. simple syrup
Place lime wedges and sugar in a glass. Muddle the two together until all of the lime juice has been released. Add crushed ice and cachaca and stir. Sip away.
