A caipirinha cocktail muddled together with figs, lime and a cachaça base.
Welcome to the first Beach Hut Cook Mini Movie recipe post. Originally, these were stand alone recipes purely for Instagram but I had many requests for printable versions to keep for later. Always eager to share, sp here we are and happy to be so.
We made this recipe whilst on holiday in Portugal where fig trees grew alongside mint and rosemary bushes which fuelled our entire holiday. Hence the Fig Caipirinha cocktail.
Should you wish to have a more refined version of the cocktail, then feel free to remove some of the lumpy bits but I love it as it is. A cocktail that gives you something to eat at the same time is always golden for me.
Should you wish to find previous movies on Instagram they can be found under #beachhutcookminimovies
A delicately flavoured citrusy cocktail with Brazilian Cachaça as its base.
1 lime, quartered
1 fig, quartered
2 teaspoon sugar
Place the lime, fig and sugar in a glass and muddle until the lime and fig is crushed and the sugar has dissolved.
Pour over the Cachaça. Add ice and stir.
Should you wish to have a smother caipirinha, by all means remove the chunkier elements of the cocktail but I personally love it as it is.
Definitely one of your five a day then too! I have grown to love figs in the past couple of years – delicious! 🙂
Seriously lovely aren’t they?! X
My in laws have 2 fig trees we will have to try this next season.
Whenever I get together with my girlfriends we always have a new cocktail to try! Now I can contribute the drinks at our next ladies night 🙂 Gotta love figs….
Love the sound of that!
I love figs! I have never heard of Cachaca. Is that readily available at most stores?
Oh yes, most supermarkets have it.
This is alcoholic or not?
Oh yes, most definitely! I do have some mocktail recipes which can be found in my Drinks banner. Thanks
Now this sounds like a really interesting cocktail, I would never have thought of using figs in one!
I shall have to try this, it does sound very good. Love cocktails
I don’t drink, but this sounds super delicious!! I always think that figs are such an underrated fruit! 🙂 xx
I’m sure if you used lemonade or a soda water instead of the rum it would make the most refreshing mocktail x
Caipirinha’s are MY FAVE. The fact you glammed it up with fig just made them 10x more appealing!!!
This sounds delicious, I really love a cocktail so I’ll have to try to recreate this.
Well I already love your site because of all the cocktail recipes. Seriously, what girl doesn’t love a cocktail? The fruitier the better! I’m trying to imagine if this tastes like a Fig Newton bar haha. Have you ever tried those? If so, I bet it’s tasty!
Thank you. No never tried one of those. What’s in it?
i have never tried a fig drink before but it looks like it would be absolutely delicious! What a lovely idea! 🙂
This looks delicious, will definitely show this to hubby to try out next time. Thanks for sharing!
Not a drinker but we’ll take your word that this is a pleasant tasting drink.
Wow, this is knew to me and I find it interesting. I would love to give this a try and have some cocktails with my friends over one weekend.
Never had Fig Caipirinha but it looks and sounds amazing
I’m not a fan of bits in my drinks so I’d have to make it super smooth but sounds yummy x
Figs are such a pretty accompaniment to any dish especially cocktails! I like my cocktails to have character so I would definitely be keeping the chunkier ingredients in there.
Yay for the chunkier version! Me too!
So… if I drink 5 I got 5 of my 5 a day right? lol! Normally not the biggest fan of figs but this seems delicious!
I’m sure it does!!
This one is perfect for me, as I adore figs – so tasty 🙂 x
I’ve never been a lover of fig but this looks delicious yummy
I am always on the look out for new cocktails to try and I am definitely going to try this one.
oh wow, that looks & sounds amazing! I suspected Cachaça was rum but I googled it anyway to check. I do love a rum & lime combo, I bet it was lovely 🙂
Yes a white rum would work too. Either way the combo is a winner. I had three when making this video! I’m all about the recipe testing!! X
I’ve not really had many cocktails! It’s an interesting twist with the fig must be rather tasty.
Cocktails are my favourite beverage so I really love the sound of your fig caipirinha. It looks like it would be a refreshing drink! x
It looks so refreshing cocktail. I will definitely share this to my friends.
I am forever getting cocktails when I go out, they always seem to taste so good! I’ve never heard of this, however it sounds lovely! :)x
This is one of my favourite cocktails, but I have never had figs in it. What a great autumnal twist.
I agree it can be nice to have a little nibble of the contents of a cocktail. This must be great I do love fig. Never had it in a cocktail although I have had lychee pieces in one before and that was good.
This looks and sounds delicious. I love cocktails, so will definitely need to try making this one.
Oh wow this looks amazing, love the idea of fig in a cocktail.
I haven’t had a Caipirinha in forever, made me really crave one with this yummy looking one
I have a bunch of figs in my kitchen! I might need to try this, thanks for sharing!
sounds fab – I’d never have thought of using figs in cocktails
I have actually never had a caipirinha before or had figs in cocktails. I shall try it as it does sound like a delicious drink.
My mummy loves the sound of this Fig Caipirinha cocktail! It was nice seeing you at #BlogCampOnBoard today *breakfast bagel & egg lady* x
Oh thank you xx lovely to see you too.
oh my! These look amazing. I do love a good Caipirinha but have never tried a fig one. I feel the need to rectify this soon x
Thanks Tanya. Figs have a mysterious taste for me but in a good way!
I love fig, and this just made me feel like I’m missing out the best cocktails in the world. I will surely make one like this, thanks for the recipe
I’m not a fan of figs, but maybe the combination of those with the other ingredients would mask the fig flavor. I know when I add spinach to my smoothies, I don’t usually taste the spinach!
Figs are my absolute number one favourite fruit, I really mean that, it’s one of my highlights of early autumn! Your cocktail sounds gorgeous! It was lovely to meet and chat with you yesterday:)
Oh thank you Monika. Likewise it was lovely to meet you too. Heading over to your blog now x
I’ve never had a caipirinha, but as a fig fanatic, these look right up my street! x
What an interesting drink – I never would have thought to add fig into a drink. It looks delicious!
OH wow, what an interesting, intriguing drink. I’ve never thought about adding fig to anything, let alone a drink. <3
I don’t think I have ever tried figs before, so will have to give these cocktails a go!
What a great way to enjoy fresh figs. I have used them in smoothies before, but not like this. Will have to try this out next time I an get my hands on some of these.
My fig tree needs to hurry up and ripen!! This drink sounds amazing!
I’ve never heard of putting figs in a cocktail. I bet this taste amazing. I love figs!
I had several different flavours of Caipirinhas when we were in Rio, each more delicious than the last. Fig Caipirinha sound fab, definitely giving it a try. GG
Oh how jealous am I? Drinking Caipirinhas in Rio? How perfect. Elinor x
I am a huge caipirinha fan but I’ve never had it with figs. I am so intrigued as I love figs. It sounds like a fabulous drink that I must make soon!! Cheers!!!
Thank you Kathy, it’s always good to hear from a fellow Caipirinha fan! Elinor x
I lOVE figs.! In all things be it food or desserts but I must admit I’ve never had a cocktail with figs before. I love the idea. This would be perfect for me.. Pinning for later.
Thanks Verna x
What a creative use for figs! I love this. Cheers!
I can honestly say that I’ve never tried a Caipirinha, but I adore figs and have added this to our ‘must try’ list!
That’s perfect — you’re macerating the figs and then eating them. It would be a terrible waste to throw them away, especially since they soaked up all the luscious flavor!! This is a drink I’ve got to try.
Thanks Marisa x
We don’t drink and I am sad that I won’t be able to indulge in the fruity drink. It took me a while to get used to the flavor of fig, but lately I have been using them once in a while.
By replacing the rum with a sparkling water or lemonade makes a refreshing non alcoholic version. Hope that works for you x
This is so perfect right now for fig season! Love it. Such a great drink for parties and get togethers!
What a lovely cocktail! This sounds fabulous!
Oh gosh this looks amazing and I love figs so definitely giving this a go!!
Oh this looks so refreshing. Never had taste but hope soon (if avail). Thanks for sharing.
It hits the spot doesn’t it x
What a brilliant combo! Can’t wait to make it.
Delicious caipirinha, lucky to have some fresh fig, my fig plant is small doesn’t want to grow big. I think I need to buy some from the store to try this recipe.
What a fab recipe, Elinor… and I am so with you on the ‘lumpy’ bits – how else can we get away with claiming that cocktails are actually dessert? 😉 xx
Yes! Lumpy bits = a dessert. Win, win!
I love figs and I love caipirinhas. Going to give this a whirl.
