I’ve been out in freezing cold Calgary this week and I need a tropical drink to warm me up. Fortunately Simon (winner from this week’s contest) wrote in with a recipe for the Pineapple Sage Caipirinha (say what?) a more advanced drink than usual, but I dare you to try it!

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 oz. Cachaca  (you can find it at the LCBO it’s made from unrefined sugar cane and is comparable to rum)
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • lime
  • fresh sage leaves (6-10)
  • 1/2 oz.  simple syrup or you can just use sugar
  • shaker

Simon says:

Muddle lime, sage leaves and sugar, add pineapple juice, Cachca and ice, shake and serve over ice in a rock glass. A bit of 7Up or soda water for bubbles is a nice touch too.

Enjoy your beach-y drink this weekend. Can’t wait to get back to Toronto’s hot and humid weather.

Bottoms up!
