Out of all of the cachaça cocktail recipes that I've found on the Web, I think I've only gotten around to making two of them. This one will most likely be number three, at once once the local grocery store starts carrying tangerines again.
I came across this recipe via SnagWire Media, which credits Bon Appetit:
- 3 small chopped seeded tangerines or small oranges (no need to peel)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
- 3/4 cup tangerine juice
- 1 1/2 cup cachaça (Brazilian sugarcane liquor) or vodka.
Divide tangerines or small oranges among 6 tumblers. Add 2 teaspoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon grated peeled ginger to each glass. Crush the ingredients in the bottom of the glass with a muddler or handle of a wooden spoon. Top each drink with 2 tablespoons tangerine juice and 1/4 cup cachaça (Brazilian sugarcane liquor) or vodka. Fill glasses with ice cubes, stir, and serve.
