Getting Tropical

Jun 10th


Has the fact summer is here it you yet?

I am still jumping for joy with this weather!!

Well it’s TGIF so time for a cocktail.

This week is extra special as I just finished a 10-day cleanse.

YES!! 10 DAYS!!!

A shake for breakfast and dinner.

A little food for lunch.

And a whole lotta water.

So you better believe I am beyond excited for a cocktail!!!

(quite the oxymoron!)

And nothing sounds better right now than a Caipirinha!

Light and refreshing!!



  • 1/2 lime juiced, rind reserved, plus wedge for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons turbinado (raw cane) sugar

  • Place lime rind in a heavy 12-ounce rocks glass; sprinkle with sugar. Add lime juice and cachaca; let stand 5 minutes. Fill glass with ice and stir until well combined. Garnish with a lime wedge; serve immediately.
