IMG_1328The Caipirinha is a popular cocktail in Brazil (my character, Ana, orders one in chapter 1 of Radiant City).

This drink is delicious and fresh — perfect for warm summer days!


Caipirinha recipe:

1 1/2 oz (50 ml) of Cachaça

2 tsp of sugar (white or raw), plus more for rim of glass

1 lime, cut into 8 wedges

Sparkling water (opt.)

Cut the lime into wedges and use one to moisten around the rim of the glass. Pour a thin layer of sugar on a plate and press the rim of the glass into it. Set aside to dry. Muddle the 2 tsp sugar into the lime wedges in a glass. Add crushed ice and Cachaça. Add splash of sparkling water (optional). Enjoy!
