Wow, is this potent! I didn't have limes so made with lemons and a good saphire gin. It was a little to potent for me, so ended up adding some club soda to the glass and that made for a very nice, cooling drink after a hot day of yard work.
Good stuff but I enjoy this with cachaca over gin in this drink, but good when out of it! I did muddled in a shaker glass then gave a good shake. Which is key to this drink. I did cut back on the sugar to half the amount.
Part of Menu #66619 which we did taste tasting of the different versions of Caipirinha`s. Thanks!
Very tasty and easy to make cocktail. I used 1/2 a lime instead of a whole and 2 teaspoons of sugar, instead of 1 tablespoon. This is very close to a caipirinha, using gin instead of cachaca. Very refreshing and perfect for summer! Made for ZWT 7.
