Are you ready for a Labor Day? Have you already planed a menu for the holiday picnic? What about drinks? We all deserve a good drink, don’t we? We worked hard to become more successful and wealthier which also helps to make our country stronger and prosperous.
Strawberry caipirincha is a great cocktail to celebrate the end of summer on the Labor Day weekend. Slightly sweet and sour, citrusy and zesty, it is a company pleasure.
(Inspired by Bloomberg’s article about the cachaça, and by Gates Otsuji, Chef de Bar, Standard Hotels, NY)
In a shaker, muddle the strawberries, lime juice and simple syrup.
Add the cachaça and 1 cup of ice and shake vigorously.
Strain (or double strain) the cocktail into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish the caipirinha with a basil leaf.
Cook with pleasure and enjoy the world!
