Cocktail Friday: The Caipirita

Posted on 05 Aug 2016 at 1:34pm

CaipiritaThe Rio Summer Olympic Games officially kick off tonight, so here’s a Texas twist on a Brazilian classic: Not a margarita, not a caipirinha, but a Paipirita.

1.5 oz. Roca Patron Silver

3/4 oz. simple syrup

3 lime wedges

1 Demerara sugar cube.

Making it: In the bottom of a double old fashioned glass, muddle the lime wedges with the syrup and the cube. Add ice and tequila, then roll drink back and forth between the glass and a tin. Pour back into glass, adding more ice if needed.
