This is one for the books. The Wild Strawberry was handcrafted by Caitey, one of the lovely bartenders you should visit at our new Lincoln Park Tasting Room. This cocktail is essentially the adult version of a strawberry limeade. It’s a bright, sour and tart mix that will have you salivating for more. Its main spirit ingredient is cachaca. If you’re not familiar with the sugarcane spirit, we highly recommend you try it. Very similar to rum, cachaca has two varieties, unaged (white) or aged (gold).
National Cachaca Day falls on September 13th. If you feel like celebrating, this is the cocktail we recommend you try. Also try the caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail. Recipe after the jump!
