Blackberry Caipirinha

Here's a quick and easy cocktail that doesn't require a shaker or any special equipment. Blackberries lend a wonderful twist to a classic Brazilian drink based on cachaça, a liqueur made from sugar cane.

Deliver Ingredients
1 drink


  • 1/2 lime, cut into 6 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fine white sugar
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 ounce cachaça
  • 6 blackberries
  • Crushed ice


Muddle the blackberries with the lime pieces and sugar in a rock glass. Add the fresh lime juice, cachaça, blackberries, and ice. Stir and serve with a straw.

Blackberry Shopping Tip

Sharon Tyler Herbst of The Food Lover's Companion says to “look for plump, deep-colored berries sans hull.”

Blackberry Cooking Tip

Blackberries are best kept in a single layer in the refrigerator and should be used within 1-2 days of purchase.
