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.
Two ounces Leblon Cachaça
Two teaspoons sugar
Half a lime, cut into wedges
Step one: Muddle the lime and sugar in a shaker.
Step Two: Fill the shaker with ice and add Cachaça.
Step Three: Shake vigorously and pour into a rocks glass.
Step Four: Garnish with a lime wheel.
