This citrus based cocktail uses Cachaca, a Brazilian spirit made from sugar canes. Limes and brown sugar combine with the Cachaca to make a truly refreshing cocktail with plenty of zing.
Caipirinha is my favourite cocktail by far, I love the sharpness of the limes balanced with the sweet brown sugar. It's also Isabella (aka Coriander Queen's) favourite too, so much so it was her first ever blog post.
I have recreated her recipe for Caipirinha, not only because we share a love for the drink but also because her blog won't be updated anymore, her Instagram feed won't show any new photos either. Tragically Isabella recently passed away, just before her 30th birthday.
As part of a group of fellow food bloggers who had the pleasure of interacting with Coriander Queen online we are recreating and sharing her recipes.
The hope is that, not only will she still live on in the hearts and memories of her husband, family and close friends. But also through the legacy of her recipes, which we encourage you to recreate yourselves. They are all wonderful.
Her friends and family are also running the Race for Life in Bath to help raise money for cancer research in memory of her. I have donated, you can too.
