About Blackberry & Cabernet Caipirinha
For this punch-like take on the caipirinha, Cantina uses a Cabernet blended with a good amount of spicy Syrah.
Ingredients and Preparation
4 ounces Simple Syrup
12 ounces cachaça (potent Brazilian sugarcane spirit)
4 ounces Cabernet Sauvignon
8 ounces fresh orange juice
2 ounces fresh lime juice
6 orange wheels
6 lime wheels
In a pitcher, muddle 12 of the blackberries with the Simple Syrup. Add the cachaça, Cabernet and the orange and lime juices and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Stir well and strain the drink into ice-filled white wine glasses. Garnish with the remaining 12 blackberries and the lime and orange wheels.
