WHILE you’re still waiting for the summer to kick in you could try this fruity cocktail to get you in the holiday mood.
Brazil’s national drink - the Caipirinha cocktail is made from Abelha Cachaça which is made with all natural, organic ingredients and is created using the most traditional artisanal methods.
Batches are kept purposely small using the same type of copper pot brought to Brazil in 1530. There are there are no short cuts and absolutely no compromise on flavour. Proving that in this instance good things come to those who wait.
The result is a full-flavoured artisanal cachaca, with an intense fruity nose, fresh sugar cane taste and very smooth finish. To top it off the Caipirinha couldn’t be easier to mix up at home:
Take a whole lime and cut into 8ths, add them to a sturdy rocks glass and muddle with 2 barspoons /teaspoons caster sugar. Add some cracked ice and a 50ml measure of Abelha Silver Cachaça and stir. Serve with a straw!
