    Mommy Diva's Note:

    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!

      Very refreshing - and much sweeter than a caipirinha so would be a good starter drink for someone trying cachaça for the first time. It's closer to a rum than a brandy. The hibiscus flowers were fun. As a dare we did each eat one and the taste on their own is not so great. In the drink they're good, and as time went on, the flavor from the muddled flowers got stronger, and the drink got pinker. I bought a lifetime supply of these dried flowers at the Caribbean market for $1.99 so we'll be having Blooms again soon!
