Thirsty Thursday #3
This refreshing bitter-sweet Brazilian drink with a kick, looks just like lemonade, but boy it is a lot more than that. Of course it depends on how strong you make it!
The Caipirinha’s main culprit is Cachaça – a sugarcane liqueur which gives it a distinctive flavour. Traditionally, lime is used for this drink, but I used lemon.
On Sunday we had the pleasure of indulging in Portuguese cuisine at the Lusito Land Festival ( read about it in my next post) and this drink was certainly popular. I still had some left over Cachaça from last year, so I made some of my own yesterday. When it comes to food and drink….it just doesn’t taste the same at home. It’s got to go with the whole ambience!
