Kiwi Mint Caipirinha

  • Author: Lexi
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: One drink


This is a pretty strong cocktail - proceed with caution!


  • 2 oz cachaça
  • 1/2 of a lime (quartered)
  • 2 scant bar spoons of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 of a peeled kiwi (quartered)
  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves


  1. Add lime and sugar to a large glass. Muddle until sugar slightly dissolves (about 10 seconds).
  2. Add quartered kiwi and continue muddling until kiwi is broken down.
  3. Add mint leaves and muddle gently for a few seconds - be careful not to bruise the mint as it will become bitter. (Read blog post for more info.)
  4. Add cachaça and a few cubes of ice. Stir for about 15 seconds and transfer to drinking glass.


We prefer to serve this in a chilled glass and remove the ice cubes as to avoid watering it down! To quickly chill a glass, put it in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to serving.
