Daiquiri

Daiquiri Cocktail


• 2 ounce Premium Rum
• Two Squeezes of Fresh Lime
• 1 ounce Fresh Lime Juice
• ¾ ounce Simple Syrup

The Daiquiri was supposedly invented in the year 1900 in a bar near the coal mine and also named local beach called ‘Daiquiri’, near Santiago, Cuba. Gaining it’s popularity in a bar called ‘El Foridita, in Havana… This is a simple mixture of light rum, sugar and lime juice. There are many, many variations! All kinds of flavors. In this video… I use a blender, but the original recipe calls for a highball glass full of crushed ice, one spoon of sugar on top… the juice of a fresh lime and a generous pour of rum on top of that. Then it was stirred by the guest with a long handled spoon… Picture a hazy, hot, slowwww day, out on the back porch…Cheers!

Gimlet

The Gimlet is a cocktail made of Gin (or Vodka) and lime juice. In this video I squeezed fresh some lime juice (not shown) and added it with a squeeze bottle. Also you want lime ‘pulp’ in this drink! Rose’s Lime Juice is a favorite of many and can be substituted with or added to the fresh juice. Either way is correct! Mix em how you like em’! Cheers

Caipirinha

Caipirinha

  • Caipirinha
  • 4 Lime Wedges, Cut in Half to Make 8 Segments
  • 1 ½ Packets of Raw Sugar
  • Muddle These… Then Add
  • 2 ounce Cachaca
  • Over ice in a rocks serving glass
  • Lime Wedge Garnish

 

The Caipirinha Cocktail is the nation drink of Brazil! It is made with fresh lime segments, sugar and cachaca. Cachaca is not a rum! It is similar, however the difference is that cachaca is is made with the fresh pressed juice from sugar cane, then fermented to make cachaca. Rum is usually made with the fermented by-products of sugar production, like molasses.

The word caipirinha is the diminutive version of the word caipira, which refers to someone from the countryside, being an almost exact equivalent of the American English, slang term: hillbilly. This cocktail is wildly popular in Brazil. A couple of variations, though not quite as popular are the Caipiroska, which is made with  vodka substituted for cachaça, and the Caipiríssima is a caipirinha made with rum instead of cachaça.

    The drink’s name is Japanese in origin, referring to the Kamikaze pilots of WW II. The name comes from the ingredients, Vodka, Triple Sec, Lime Juice. VTL, ‘Very Tragic Landing’.
