Greetings! It's been so fun to see these summer treats filter in, don't you agree? Today's post comes from Julie at Julip Made--and I know you're going to love her and this perfectly yummy post! Enjoy! xoxo {av}
Hi Long Distance Loving readers, Julie from Julip Made here! When I think summer refreshments, I immediately think of one cocktail... the caipirinha. The caipirinha is a Brazilian cocktail made using cachaça, a liquor made from fermented sugar cane juice. The drink itself is simple using only cachaça, muddle limes, and sugar. I add in some club soda to make the drink last and to make it even more refreshing. It really pairs well with what I think is the most important concept of summer entertaining... simplicity. Whip up a pitcher of these, throw something on the grill, and invite some friends over for a casual, fun, night to remember.
