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.
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.
