Basil White Pepper Caipirinha

June 19, 2015


As June’s “garden party” themed cocktail party continues, I had to include a favorite herb of mine in the line-up – basil.  I love how versatile it is, and really can make a dish (or drink) pop! Considering my mom is visiting one of her best friends this week (who introduced me to the Caipirinha), I only thought it fitting to put a fun spin on it. Here you go!


Basil Pepper Caipirinha

  • 1 oz lime
  • 1 bar spoon sugar
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 1 bar spoon white pepper corns
  • 2 oz Cachaca
  • club soda or lime LaCoix soda
  1. Muddle lime juice, sugar, peppercorns and basil leaves in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice and Cachaca and shake until frosty.
  3. Strain into an ice filled glass.
  4. Top with soda and garnish with basil.
