Pineapple-Mint Caipirinha

Share

Pineapple and mint is one of my favorite combinations. Caipirinha is my favorite drink. So why not join forces in one delicious beverage?! Pineapple-Mint Cairpirinha is a very refreshing drink. I would say it is a perfect summer drink, to enjoy by the pool or at the beach.

It certainly isn’t summer right now here in Indiana, but just a few days ago – when we were out celebrating my birthday – I had a pineapple and mint martini at a local restaurant. It was great! It took me back to summer for a few minutes… And I take that feeling any day! So if you are also missing summer already, try this refreshing drink and dream of summer days ahead!

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons sugar (depending how sweet you like your drinks)
  • ½ cup diced pineapple
  • 1 shot cachaça (use vodka if you are unable to find cachaça)
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Directions: 

Place mint leaves and sugar in a glass (preferably a lowball glass). Using a pestle, muddle until a thick paste forms. Add pineapple and muddle until it incorporates. Add cachaça and ice cubes. Stir well, adding a bit of water if needed. Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
