Pineapple Caipirinha: A Drink Recipe
1.5 oz Leblon Cachaça
4 Lime Wedges
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
Splash of Pineapple Juice
Splash of Lemon-Lime soda such as Sprite
In a rocks glass, muddle three lime wedges with the simple syrup, then fill with ice. Add in Cachaça, pineapple juice and Sprite, stir to mix well, and garnish with pineapple chunk and the last lime wedge.
PS. If you cannot get a hold of any Cachaça, you may substitute with light rum. This would probably not go over well with the Brazilians, but… this flavoured variation isn’t the original thing, either. Oh well.
