Top Review by Muffin Goddess

I think this is my new favorite drink! Sometimes cachaca-based drinks can be harsh because much of the cachaca available in US liquor stores is not of the highest caliber, but this was sweet, a little tart and very easy to drink. I like caipirinhas with just the lime and sugar, but the passionfruit juice put this one over the top. I definitely would've had two of these if I didn't have a couple of other drinks to try for Culinary Quest, lol. Thanks for posting!
