Espresso Caipirinha Mocktail

One of the tastiest mocktails goin’ round. Give it a go!

Caipirinha (pronounced /kaypirinya/) is a Brazilian cocktail made with a sweet rum type liquor called cachaça (pronounced /kashassa/), lime and sugar. It’s a firm favourite in Brazil.  You might have also heard of the caprioska, which is similar to a caipirinha but made with vodka. Well this drink has neither, but it’s still absolutely delicious.
