Passionate Caiphirina

3rd Place winner of the Tropical Fruit Growers of South Florida Award-Winning Cocktail Recipes

By: Frank Randazzo and Scott Barns of the Talula

Serves 2

2½ oz. Pitu Cachaca - Use Pure Light Rum instead as an Option

Cachaca pitu is a national drink in Brasil. It is the basis of the Caipirinha, one of the most popular cocktails of the end of the millennium. It is a sugar cane distillate, which is similar to white rum. However, it is not made of molasses but of sugar cane. That is why the taste of Cachaca is lighter and smoother than that of many types of rum, making it an ideal base for cocktails.

2 Passion Fruits (juice and seeeds)
2 Lychees, peeled and seeded
1 oz. Simple Lychee Syrup  Click here to Obtain Lychee syrup
