The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicked off last night in Sao Paulo, Brazil and many a Caipirinha would have been mixed to celebrate the big event!
Caipirinha (pronounced kie-purr-REEN-yah) is the national drink of Brazil made with an intensely sweet Brazilian style of rum, fine sugar and lime. In the spirit of the world’s biggest single-event sporting competition, we have designed our own take on this traditional drink, using Leopard’s Leap Lookout Semi-Sweet.
Join us at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards for the duration of the Soccer World Cup between 12 June and 13 July when we will be serving our Lookout Semi-Sweet Caipirinha or try the recipe below and make your own at home!
