5 O’Clock + Leftover Berries = Berry Caipirinha

It’s 5 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon so that means its copetin time (which means drinks with some nibbles in my part of the world)!

Yesterday there were a few suggestions made as to what I should do with some leftover berries.


Last night I made some crepes filled with Grand Marnier Cream and berries and still managed to have berries left over.

So following one of the suggestions I decided to send my mind to Brazil whilst I sipped on my delicious Berry Caipirinha!


For this I used:

  • Mixed berries that had been sitting in sugar and lime juice in the fridge for the last 2 days.
  • Cachaca
  • Simple syrup
  • Lime
  • Mint

Muddled my berries with some lime, simple syrup and cachaca. Poured it into a glass full of ice, added some sprigs of mint and drank it! Well not all in one go but nearly, it was soooooo delicious and the best part is that I have enough berries to make a couple more :-).
