Pineapple Caipirinhas

Caipririnhas (pronounced kye-pur-een-yah) are a popular refreshing cocktail in Brazil

This version isn’t 100% Brazilian, but it will most definitely get you in the spirit!

Cachaca liquor isn’t readily available in any liquor stores near us, so we substituted with light rum.  It’s OK… our friends in Brazil won’t judge us

For 2 cocktails, I’m using 4 ounces of light rum, 2 tablespoons of freshly diced pineapple, 2 tablespoons of superfine sugar, 1/2 lime and a bunch of fresh mint

Divide superfine sugar, pineapple and mint between 2 glasses

Muddle (which just means to mash) until the ingredients are combined well

I like my drinks icy cold, so I’ve added the rum and lime juice to a shaker filled with crushed ice.  Shake it baby!!

Pour over the muddled mint-pineapple mixture and give a quick stir to combine

Fill the rest of the glass with crushed ice and serve with a garnish fresh pineapple and a mint sprig
