I am a coconut lover. In Brazil a lot of our cuisine includes the use of coconut since we have so much of it all over the country. I simply love to drink refreshing drinks in the summer and this is definitely at the top of my list as it is my favourite drink. Ever.
So picture yourself at Ipanema beach, surrounded by beautiful people, an amazing calm ocean, with the perfect temperature and a coconut drink in your hands. Perfection.
Check out this easy recipe and as you drink it pretend you’re in Brazil.
I was raised in Sao Paulo, a city with high temperatures and beautiful beaches only a few hours away. My vacations and long weekends were spent under the sun and by the water. Brazilians love to spend all day at the beach, eating and drinking, enjoying life to the fullest.
Many people know that “Caipirinha” is our national drink.
Caipirinha is an alcoholic drink made of sugar, lime and Cachaça (distilled drink made of sugarcane juice). We love to drink it on a hot day but be aware that its sweetness can be dangerous, you may find yourself drunk and not be quite sure how it happened so quickly.
