I haven't tried this drink yet. I think when I do I'll use less sugar than I see in recipes to suit my taste. I like the infused swizzle stick idea.
Next time I'm at Yankee Spirits I might pick up a bottle,although it might sit until next summer as it's the time of year where my cocktail thoughts go to whiskey and bitters.
Which drink, Caipirinha or limoncello? I have yet to make limoncello at home, but I agree that most homemade versions I've tried have been too sweet for even my tastes
Most recipes call for just the zest of the citrus, but with no acidity from the juice to cut the sweetness they end up like alcoholic syrup.
My Caipirinha recipe is 1/2 of a lime muddled with 1 & 1/2 packets of raw sugar in the bottom of a tall glass. Fill with crushed ice, followed by cachaca. I'll take that over a mojito all day, every day.
