FROLIC – Blackberry & Cabernet Caipirinha

As an old colleague of mine Fridays were meant to end with a nice drink in the hand; hence he nicknamed that time of day on Frolic (Friday Alcoholic).  With this theme in mind Fridays are going to always include a fun signature cocktail recipe inspiration for your wedding.

INGREDIENTS

24 blackberries

4 ounces Simple Syrup

12 ounces cachaça (potent Brazilian sugarcane spirit)

4 ounces Cabernet Sauvignon

8 ounces fresh orange juice

2 ounces fresh lime juice

Ice

6 lime wheels

6 orange wheels

In a pitcher, muddle 12 of the blackberries with the Simple Syrup. Add the cachaça, Cabernet and the orange and lime juices and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Stir well and strain the drink into ice-filled white wine glasses. Garnish with the remaining 12 blackberries and the lime and orange wheels.
