Strawberry-Pineapple Caipirinha

caipirinha6

As I’ve said before, the smashing Caipirinha is my favorite drink. The original is still my favorite, but I also love the cherrySt-Germain & Rosemary Caipiroska, and this one, which includes strawberries and pineapple along with the traditional lime. Muddle, shake, sip, and enjoy.

from: 101 Mojitos
makes: 1

2 ripe strawberries, hulled, plus 1 strawberry for garnish
¼ cup fresh pineapple chunks, plus wedge for garnish
4 lime wedges
1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces cachaça
pineapple caipirinha

Fill a rocks glass with ice and set aside. In a mixing glass, muddle 2 of the strawberries with the pineapple chunks, lime wedges, and simple syrup. Add the cachaça and top with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into the iced rocks glass. (This drink contains a lot of pulp so I like to strain it, but if you like a lot of fruit pulp, pour the shaken contents into the glass.) Garnish with the strawberry and pineapple wedge.
