Kumquat-Ginger Caipirinha Cocktail Recipe

Adding a kumquat-ginger caipirinha to your list of must-try drinks is a wise choice, because it is a divine experience of flavor. Using fresh kumquat and ginger to flavor the sugar and cachaça, this recipe is a variation on the popular Brazilian cocktail caipirinha. A great aspect of this drink is that kumquats typically have a season that runs from December or January to March or April, so you can get a taste of spring during the winter by drinking this. A recipe for Leblon Cachaça is used in this recipe. In order for it to be so refreshing and complex, it should be made with special cachaça, considering how dependent it is on fresh flavors. In recent years, it has become easier to find good cachaça, such as Leblon.
