Recipe by CarolAnn

This is a wonderful, fresh summertime drink. It is Brazilian in origin.

Top Review by Rachel Savage

Delicious, STRONG and fun to drink. I will definitely make again. Found out in a magazine that this was "last year's" fashionable drink, but I don't care -- the recipe is too good to put aside for the sake of trendiness.
