Caipirinha the word itself means country girl, but the caipirinha cocktail is by no means a hillbilly chick drink. Its more like a beach babe partying it up under the glorious Brazilian sun drink. The drink originated in the sugarcane fields, when the workers would drink it with the juice made from sugarcane known as pinga or Cachaça, after a long days work. The recipe was then refined and the drink made its way to the city. Including MIDORI in the drink gives it an even more urban flavor. Although its alcohol content is quite strong, the MIDORI Caipirinha tastes great at any time of day. Pull up a stool at the bar and enjoy the cocktail that time forgot.
