If you haven’t already experienced the sweet bliss of a Caipirinha (heeeeey kai-purr-reen-yah - ‘aight), I highly recommend it. I ordered my first one at a Brazilian steakhouse and it instantly became my new favorite cocktail!
It’s already a very easy to make at home with only three ingredients - limes, sugar and Brazilian cachaça rum (made from fermented sugarcane juice)…it’s so refreshing and so good.
The other day, I wanted to make a Caipirinha but we didn’t have any limes! That is when I discovered a shortcut that makes my favorite cocktail even easier to make, with only two ingredients.
What makes this shortcut Caipirinha possible is actually margarita mix - Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix to be exact. In addition to making a delicous ‘shortcut’ margarita, this one-step lime + agave mix is a tasty duplicate for the muddled lime + sugar in a Caipirinha. It’s also a real time saver if you want to make a party-sized batch of this delicious cocktail.
Okay, let’s do this!
Preparation - Pour the margarita mix and the rum into a rocks glass and stir well. Fill the glass to the rim with ice, stir again and garnish with lime wedge.
I’ve made a batch of ‘traditional’ Caipirinhas before and it was fairly time consuming to prep and juice and muddle all of the limes required. This margarita mix shortcut is a real time saver if you want to whip up a quick and tasty batch.
Preparation - Pour the margarita mix and the rum into a large beverage container or pitcher and stir well. When ready to drink, pour into rocks glasses filled to the rim with ice, stir again and garnish with lime wedge.
If you’ve never had a Caipirinha, make sure you try this! It’s strong and delicious.
Preparation - In a rocks glass, muddle the sugar with 3 lime wedges. Add the rum and stir to mix well. Fill the glass to the rim with ice, stir again and garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
I hope you try and love these Caipirinha recipies as much as I do.
