Caipirinha: The Ultimate Summer Cocktail

When I think of Caipirinhas, I think of the Galápagos Islands.

Yes, I know  the Caipirinha cocktail originates from Brasil,  but the Galapagos Islands residents make a caipirinha that will put hairs on your chest. There are several popular bars in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island that are famous for serving delicious caipirinhas. I got to know these cachaça spiked cocktails on board of a cruise yacht, while on a trip to these islands. Even the tiniest boat has an outside bar on board, where you can enjoy a few of these cocktails after you have visited one of the stunning islands. I never drank a caipirinha until I took this fabulous trip and I always go down memory lane when I sip this drink.

Try it, but be warned, it’ll get you hooked!
