Brazilian flair rhubarb strawberry caipirinha is so refreshing and delicious.. it’s the face of spring. It’s super easy to make and it requires only one liquor… cachaça, the Brazilian liquor.
We have made before the original caipirinha, the watermelon and many others… Just type in our search box for caipirinhas and it will show all the recipes that we have on our blog. We love caipirinhas!! Since I made it for the first time for Marilyn this Brazilian drink became our spring/summer drink. What we love the most about caipirinhas is that you use fresh fruit, one liquor and that’s it.
We have a lot of rhubarb at home so we decided to make few recipes with. We made a rhubarb simple syrup that turned out so beautiful! and we also used the cooked rhubarb in the drink along with fresh strawberries. Rhubarb is another food that I never had in Brazil and I’ve learned to enjoy it in so many different ways.
I loved this “Food Hacks that are Life Changing/Cooking tips” !! I didn’t know that I could ripen an avocado that fast!! Wow! Regarding the hard-boiled eggs… I hate to peel eggs, there is no trick that would make it easy for me. I don’t know about you…
- Rhubarb Syrup
- 5 cups sliced rhubarb ( 5 large stalks)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 fresh strawberry sliced
- Rhubarb syrup
- Rhubarb cooked (the one used to make the syrup)
- fresh squeezed lime juice
- Fresh strawberry
- Rhubarb stalk
- To make the syrup, add rhubarb, sugar, and water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25-30 minutes until rhubarb is overcooked, very soft and mixture has thickened.
- Strain through a fine strainer and transfer the strained syrup to a jar.
- To make the drink add one table spoon of rhubarb cooked, add fresh strawberry, rhubarb syrup and the last touch add the cachaça. Garnish with fresh strawberry and rhubarb stalk.
- We didn't add the exact quantity of the ingredients because some people like more sweet or less sweet, stronger or not than others.
Beijos and Tchau!
