From New York Magazine:
With Thanksgiving out of the way but not forgotten, and Christmas and Hanukkah looming, you could probably use a drink. We recommend this winterized Caipirinha, made with fresh cranberries, by the folks at Ideya Latin Bistro.
Here's the recipe, truly a caipirinha for a colder climate.
Ideya’s Cranberry Caipirinha
(1) Place the lime, orange, and cranberries in a mixing glass. Add the sugar and muddle with the fruit. Fill a rocks glass with cracked ice and transfer the ice to the mixing glass. (2) Add the lime juice and the cachaça, and shake well. (3) Pour everything, including all the muddled fruit from the shaker, into the rocks glass and serve.
- 1 or 2 lime wedges (to taste)
