No other drink reminds me more of summer than caipirinha… or is more celebratory of The World Cup Brazil! With temperatures soaring, I told myself that I had to make one today — yes, a Strawberry Caipirinha! And not only that, but to also present many others from our collection…
… Traditional Caipirinha (with lime and cachaça), Tangiroska (a variation of caipirinha made from tangerine and vodka), Pomegranate Caipririnha, Berry Caipilé (berry caipirinha with tangerine popsicle), and Watermelon Caipisake (another variation of caipirinha made from watermelon and sake).
If you don’t consume alcohol, you can still have these superb drinks by switching alcohol for sparkling (flavored) water. This is what I often do!
With or without alcohol, it is time for a super refreshing, seasonal, ruby-like strawberry caipirinha! It is pure summer in a glass, don’t you think? Let’s cheer for our soccer teams while refreshing ourselves with this strawberry caipirinha and others like the ones described above.
Which one of them is your favorite? Which country are you cheering for?
And here is the video on how to make strawberry caipirinha:
- 4-5 quartered medium strawberries (stems removed)
- 2-3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- About 3-4 Tablespoons of sparkling water (for a non-alcoholic version) or cachaça (alcoholic version). If cachaça is not available in your area, use either white rum or vodka.
- Crushed ice
- Place the strawberries into a 6-ounce glass. Then, spoon the sugar on top of the strawberries. Using a pestle, mash the fruit, and stir in the sparkling water or cachaça (or white rum/vodka). Fill the glass with crushed ice. Decorate as desired. Cheers!
