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 . . .
