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
- 1 lime, quartered
- 1 fig, quartered
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- 50ml Cachaça
- 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.
