Cranberry Caipirinha

  • Servings: makes 1 drink

The slave trade left a strong African imprint on Brazilian cuisine, which is why Marcus Samuelsson chose to serve this classic Brazilian cocktail at his African-themed party. In his version, however, he muddles cranberries along with the usual lime and replaces the Brazilian spirit cachaca (made from sugarcane juice) with Scandinavian aquavit (an infused spirit).
