Berry Cab Caipirinha


For this punch-like take on the caipirinha, Cantina uses a Cabernet blended with a good amount of spicy Syrah. It offers a nice blend of a sangria type drink with a shot of sugar.  This recipe came from Cocktails 2008 via  Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar, and lime where the sugar and lime is mixed together and then the cachaca is added. So this is a very forward mix of a traditional caipirinha and a sangria.
