Pumpkin Caipirinha Cocktail

All Recipes Vegan's picture

This recipe calls for cachaça, a popular distilled spirit from Brazil made from sugarcane. If you don't have cachaça on hand, you can substitute using white rum. Both are made from unrefined sugars, though cachaça will be more tart. Either way, you're going to love this cocktail!

1/2 lime, cut into 4 pieces
1/2 oz. agave nectar
1/4 tsp freshly grated ginger (optional)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 1/2 oz. cachaça or white rum
1 1/2 oz. pumpkin puree
1/2 oz. ginger liqueur

For garnish:
sprinkling of nutmeg
lime wedge
sliver if pumpkin

Using a cocktail shaker, combine the lime, agave nectar, and fresh ginger; muddle. Add ice, cachaça, pumpkin puree, and ginger liqueur; shake well. Garnish drink with a sprinkling of the nutmeg, lime wedge and pumpkin sliver.
