My Guaraná Cocktail

In need of a drink while watching the Miss Universe pageant on TV, I looked around my kitchen to see what I could make. What I ended up with is not quite a caipirinha, but it’s just as refreshing and tasty. Guaraná soda is quite common in Brazil, and has a very light, fruity taste.

Ingredients:
1 shot cachaça or pinga
1/2 cup Guaraná soda
1/2 lime
a couple of sprigs of fresh mint
ice

Pour cachaça into glass and muddle in mint leaves and lime juice. If you have patience, wait at least an hour for the mint to infuse the cachaça. Add soda and ice and enjoy!
