The Copacabana BangerSummer is here, and being whisked away to an exotic tropical location is almost within your reach. Dreaming of sun kissed beaches and beautiful palm trees? Sexy men and warm ocean waters? While you’re thinking about where to plan/take your next holiday, escape into a taste of Brazil’s (and perhaps the world’s) most famous beach with the Copacabana Banger.

An Americanized twist on a classic Braziliano beverage: the Caipirinha, the Copacabana Banger is an exotic tasting cocktail made from Brazil’s main liquor: Cachaça, but features a bit of Hawaiian pineapple juice for an extra tropical tasting finish. Your taste buds will explode with the delicious taste of mint and lime combined with a bit of sugar.

One minute, you’ll be dreaming of your next vacation. The next minute, you’ll be sipping on the Copacabana Banger and envisioning you’re already there.

  • 1 oz cachaça
  • 1 small, sliced lime
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 oz pineapple juice

Muddle lime, mint, and sugar in the bottom of a shaker. Fill with ice. Add cachaça and pineapple juice. Shake. Pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a strawberry and fresh mint sprig.

Enjoy and drink responsibly.
