ON THE BAR * Cherry Caipirissima

I think I found my new summer cocktail, the Cherry Caipirissima. Its a twist on the classic caipirinha (also a favorite), but has delicious cherries and insane color.

What you’ll need for one drink:

3/4 ounce simple syrup
3 cherries, pitted and halved
Half a lime, cut into quarters
2 ounces white rum.

In a cocktail shaker, press and mix the simple syrup, cherries and lime quarters with a muddler. Add the rum and a handful of broken ice. Shake well and pour everything into a rocks glass.

When stocking your bar you’ll want to add a muddler for mashing fruits or herbs and spices in the bottom of glasses and pitchers. I’m also thinking of investing in a Lewis Ice Bag for crushing ice. Crushed ice is key for certain cocktails like caipirinhas, mojitos, and the government mule. You can also crush your ice using a muddler and the metal part of your cocktail shaker.
