The traditional cairpirnha
The eyes of the world were on Brazil this summer for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

While it's been wrapped up for quite some time now, we're still slightly obsessed with all thing Brazilian -- beaches, bikinis, beautiful people, brigadeiro (those little chocolate bonbons that are utterly addictive), the list goes on and on.

Sunday is Brazilian Independence Day; to honor the country that's all about having fun -- hello, carnival -- we thought it would be appropriate to enjoy a cocktail, or two.

Chima Steakhouse gave us recipes for traditional and acai caipirinha.
