For this punch-like take on the caipirinha, Cantina uses a Cabernet blended with a good amount of spicy Syrah.

  1. 24 blackberries
  2. 4 ounces Simple Syrup
  3. 12 ounces cachaça (potent Brazilian sugarcane spirit)
  4. 4 ounces Cabernet Sauvignon
  5. 8 ounces fresh orange juice
  6. 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  7. Ice
  8. 6 orange wheels
  9. 6 lime wheels
  1. In a pitcher, muddle 12 of the blackberries with the Simple Syrup. Add the cachaça, Cabernet and the orange and lime juices and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Stir well and strain the drink into ice-filled white wine glasses. Garnish with the remaining 12 blackberries and the lime and orange wheels.
