Caipirinhas and more...

With the World Cup in full swing now, I was interested in learning a little about Brazilian cocktails.  As Brazil is arguably the party country of the world, apart from Caipirinhas (cachaca rum, lime, sugar and ice), I have never had any other Brazilian drink, and frankly, why would I when Caipirinhas are divine!

Apparently a Caipirinha without lime is a Batida so now I'm looking forward to trying a strawberry Batida this weekend...

Other fruits used in a Batida are lemon, passion fruit and coconut.  All sound equally delicious!

Some Brazilian inspiration below, just in time for the weekend (oh and of course the next round of the Football World Cup...)

Australia might be out of this year's World Cup but the boys did us proud!
