Caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brazil, is made with Cachaca rum which tastes more like tequila than traditional rum. To balance the bold flavors, we added fresh watermelon, mint and lime juice to create an amazing Watermelon Caipirinha Cocktail—perfect for a hot summer day.

Preparation

  1. Take one glass tumbler and add 2 wedges of lime.

  4. Now add 4 cubes of chilled watermelon and muddle again.
  5. Now top with ice.
  6. Pour over 1.5 oz of cachaca, stir, and add tropical type garnishes to get you in the mood.
