  1. Caipiroska–Switch out the cachaca (pronounced kah-SHAW-suh) for vodka.

    Use splenda if you wanna save some calories!


  2. Mmmm, I enjoyed this delicious drink at the Met Cafe at the JW Marriott Marquis in Miami. The hotel was fabulous- I intend to write a review! Thanks P,M & M!

  3. A correction. Instead of sugar cane you should put sugar 😉

    A suggestion. Use other fruits (strawberry is great!) as well and mix at will…
