Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, traditionally made with a sugar-cane-based hard liquor. Here, the makers of Sheringham Seaside Gin have updated the recipe for the Pacific Northwest.
We included Sheringham in our list of the Best Gins Made in British Columbia, and the Vancouver Island–based distillery has been making waves elsewhere, voted Canadian Artisan Spirit of the Year at the 2020 CASC Awards.
This recipe is perfect for a decadent autumn cocktail on a chilly evening. Lime recalls summer, while the honey and gin help keep the cold at bay.
