The heart of the Caipirinha is cachaça, a spirit as central to Brazilian tradition as samba. Of course, Cachaça can also be enjoyed neat. But when you pair it with fresh lime juice and sugar, you have a perfectly blended caipirinha. This sweet beverage is fantastic on hot days and pairs well with modern bar food, tapas, and traditional Brazilian fare.
Cachaça is similar to rum in that it is derived from sugar cane, but that's where their similarities end. Cachaça comes from the fermented juice of sugarcane instead of being distilled from molasses like rum. That's why Cachaça offers a unique earthy flavor that adds an extra flavor dimension beyond sweetness found in other hot weather cocktails.
Ironically, little has changed about how a Caipirinha has been made over the centuries. Although many believe it appeared alongside the distillation of sugarcane extracts, most recorded history centers around the early 1900s. But whether you enjoy the ingredients as straight additions or add a bartender's art, there's no denying that the Caipirinha is here to stay. So grab your friends and enjoy National Caipirinha Day at 12 Cuts Brazilian Steakhouse on September 13th.
National Caipirinha Day is September 13th, so make plans to enjoy Happy Hour at 12 Cuts. Grab your friends, raise a glass to Brazil's national drink, and enjoy yourself.
