Here is an example of another kind of summer cocktail you can make with cachaca. The cranberry and lime juices and the Cointreau suggest a blended cosmopolitan, but the cachaca adds an extra bite.

Servings: 1
  • 2 ounces cachaça
  • 1 ounce amaretto liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce orange-flavor liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce unsweetened red cranberry juice
  • 1/2 ounce sugar syrup (see NOTE)
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 lime wedge, for garnish

Combine the liquid ingredients and ice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with the lime wedge, and serve with a straw.
