Saw a bottle of Cachaça on the shelf at Mehuron's yesterday and decided to buy it. While common in metro areas & S. America, I haven't seen it much up here in the north country. It brought back memories of a trip to Iguazu Falls, Brazil 20 years ago. While pondering the wonders of nature from a barstool overlooking the falls, my favorite bartender (that's what we called mixologists back then...) plied me with his twist on the traditional Caipirinha. As best I can replicate, this was his recipe for a Kicked-Up Caipirinha:

  • 2-3 oz. Cachaça, to taste (white rum will do in a pinch...)
  • 1 Lime, cut into wedges
  • 1 TBSP granulated sugar (raw is better...)
  • Fresh mint, a handful of leaves
  • Hot sauce, a few dashes

Muddle the lime, sugar, mint & hot sauce in a shaker; add the Cachaça & two cubes of ice; shake well then transfer to a glass filled with ice; garnish with more mint & lime.

The falls are pretty awesome whenever you see them, even in a drought year as it was when I was there. Having a few of these Caipirinhas took the awesomeness factor to a completely different level!
