Gisel makes a Caipirinha
This time I was in the Beach Bar Olá Brasil in Santa Maria on the island of Sal in Cape Verde. The island of Sal is 5000 km (3000 miles) from my hometown, but only 2800 km (1700 miles) from Brazil. For this reason, there is nothing better than enjoying a wonderful Caipirinha on the beach here. Bartender Gisel of Beach Bar Olà Brasil really makes one of the best Caiprinhas in the world. The island of Sal is not very big, but there are wonderful beaches. The best beach can be found in Santa Maria. And there you will also find the Beach Bar Olà Brasil. If you ever come to Sal on Cape Verde, you shouldn’t miss the Caipirinha or one of the other excellent cocktails there.
- 1 fresh lime (cut into wedges)
- Cut the lime into wedges and put the cuttet lime into a shaker.
- Add sugar and muddle the lime and the sugar.
- Fill the shaker with Cachaça and ice.
- Shake it!
- Fill the Caipirinha in a double Old Fashioned glass and garnish.
Two things make the Beach Bar Olá Brasil a special place: The flair and the atmosphere right on the beach and the people who work there. A completely cool, relaxed crew who take care of all the guests’ wishes with devotion and love. When you’re around, say hello to Gisel and Mr. White for me.
