The Ipanema Caipirinha

All this talk about bikinis this week

got me thinking about the home of the bikini,


Which in turn got me thinking about a fabulous happy hour

moment we could have, combining the bikini, Brazil, and a

refreshing summertime cocktail,

the Caipirinha.

In this case, 

the Caipirinha de Ipanema

from the Naples Grand Resort in Florida.

 Here’s what you need:

1 1/2 oz Cachaca de Brazil

2 lime wheels

2sugar cubes


Muddle the sugar and lime together, add the cachaca, shake and strain into a lime sugar rimmed glass.

Garnish with lime and a twist.

Simple, non?

And oh so chic!

Cachaca is the national drink of Brazil,

where the perfect body is not only coveted,

but romps en masse all over the beaches daily.

I think they’re onto something…

Funnily enough, Cachaca is derived from sugar cane.

And everyone wants us to believe that sugar is bad for us.

Looks like its working for these girls.
