Martha Stewart's Favorite Drink is a Capirinha

And mine too.

I am a Martha fan but don't think that the national drink of Brazil is my favorite drink because it is Martha's. I am not that fanatical.

My love of this cocktail started 10 years ago while dining at a Brazilian restaurant across from Central Park (it is no longer open).

While there, I had the most outrageous cocktail - a Capirinha.




It is made with cachaca, sugar and limes.

I have yet to drink as good a Capirinha since that night in 2000.

When I am out with friends and I order this drink, bartenders look at me like I have 3 heads.

Rather than teach them their job, I settle for a less-than-tasty white wine spritzer.

And so, the search continues . . .

Looks so refreshing and I love the color! If it's good enough for Martha, it's good enough for me. I hope that's not too fanatical!

Oh cachaca, we've had such good times together! I've had a few Capirinhas too, and from what I remember, they are delicious. My memory is a bit foggy though since the Capirinhas were preceeded by shots of straight cachaca. Yick! Lol I participated in an exchange program in college and hosted a Brazilian Profesor, and let me tell you...those Brazilians know how to party! One of the gifts I was given was a bottle of cachaca. Another was a horrible hangover the next day and lots of photos. Oh, the memories! Good times with Capirinha and cachaca shots!

I had never heard of it either. But then, I did discover cocktails a little late in life!
