Brazilian Bloom

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

A crisp, Spring and Summer drink using Cachaca (a Brazilian style liquor similar to rum made with sugar cane - yummy!) from RR. **Cachaça is often said to differ from rum in that it is made from sugarcane juice while rum is made from either molasses or sugarcane juice then aged in oak barrels.** Updated per reviewer response. :) Thank you!

Whoa,ho, ho. This is a yummy drink if you like strong and tart which is just what I LOVE!! It ended up being a beautiful pink color after the hibiscus flowers were muddled with the lime and shaken with the Cachaca...very lovely shade of PINK!! (of course, this is Michelle's drink....) I'll be having these at the end of a long day for sure!! I too have enough hibiscus flowers to last a lifetime! Thanks for the true Brazilian recipe Mommy Diva!
