We’re on the verge of spring and summer and to be that means cocktails. This Thermomix cocktail, Caipirnha, says summer and chillaxing to me over and over again.
Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, made with cachaça (sugarcane hard liquor), sugar and lime. Cachaça, also known as caninha, or any one of a multitude of traditional names, is Brazil’s most common distilled alcoholic beverage.
Have a little taste then tweak the acidity to your liking, adding more sugar if needed. Top the jug up with more crushed ice then tear in the mint leaves and give it a good stir.
