Pineapple-Mint Caipirinha (Caipirinha de Abacaxi com Hortelã)



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


  • 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


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.
