½ lime, cut into wedges
½ oz simple syrup
¾ oz Averna
2 oz Mae de Ouro Cachaça
Muddle lime wedges and raspberries in shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients, add ice, and shake hard. There’s no need to strain— dump the entire contents of the shaker into your glass (this is commonly referred to as garbage).
Caipirinhas are the national cocktail of Brazil, consisting of muddled limes, sugar, and Cachaça. Bright, earthy, and subtly briny, these beachy drinks are playful and slightly dirty.
Our version is distinctly darker. Averna’s aromatic notes bring out the blackberries and temper Cachaça’s musk. Tropical Suicide is a mind-erasing holiday on the beaches of Brazil, tinged with just a hint of regret.
