Mixology Monday 8

I’m not much of a drinker, so this is my first time participating in the Mixology Monday event. This edition, Mixology Monday #8: Exotic Drinks is being hosted by Meeta over at What’s For Lunch Honey? , so stop by early next week for the roundup.


The theme this month is exotic cocktails. Heck, to me pretty much anything is exotic. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not adventurous in my drinking. So I’ve decided to highlight one of my husband’s favorites.

The caipirinha is probably the only good thing that came out of our awful trip to the churrascaria at the now-defunct Spain Restaurant. It’s a traditional Brazilian drink, made with a muddled mix of limes, Chacaca, and superfine sugar. My husband said it’s citrusy kick is an invigorating delivery system for the slow burn of the Chacaca. Chacaca (Brazilian rum) is fairly hard to find in Columbus, but we managed to find it at the state liquor store that’s in the same strip mall as Anna’s Restaurant on Sawmill Rd. up in Dublin.

It’s very simple to make, if you have the right equipment, especially a muddler (the green topped object in my picture). And lucky for us, someone’s already made a printable step-by-step PDF so you can make your own. Bottoms up!

    We love caipirinhas! Actually one of the pics on the banner on my blog is of my husband’s caipirinhas. Got to make them with cachaca, too. It has such a unique, tasty flavor. Glad you liked the chocolate cake (I saw the post below).

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
