Happy Hour: Caipirinha and Cuba Libre

Oct 15, 2010

Last night, some friends and I descended on Cuba Libre for what can only be described as a rum soaked evening on the town.  After more mojitos and caipirinhas than I can count (triple digit bar tab, ouch), I poured myself down the street to my apartment for rehydration (with water) and some light drunk texting.  So in honor of my night in Havana (and my mild sugar-induced hangover), I thought I’d feature a recipe for my new favorite libation: caipirinha.

Red Queen Petal Dress (Etsy, $295)

When I think of a dress to wear to Cuba (or in this case, a Disneyland-esque, Cuban themed restaurant), I think vintage red ruffles.  There really is no other choice. 

Unless of course you’re into army green fatigues and cigars, and then to each her own.

Here is a recipe for a traditional caipirinha that you will no doubt enjoy.  I had the full recipe published in the post, but the original publisher objected so now there is just a link to her recipe feel free to visit her page for instructions.

This recipe is for a traditional (lime) Caipirinha, but you can muddle just about any fruit and add it to the mix.  Last night, my table tried ginger & honey, watermelon and mixed berry flavors.  They were all delicious.
