Caip-beer-inha

caipbeerinha

2 oz cachaça
1/2 lime, cut into quarters
1 tablespoon sugar
1 oz IPA

Muddle the sugar and lime, add the cachaça, and shake with ice. Pour everything into a rocks glass, top with the IPA, and give a gentle stir before serving. The IPA should add just a touch of bitterness; using too much will make the drink unbalanced.

The idea for adding IPA to a Caipirinha comes from Ezra Johnson-Greenough, who also adds herbs. The version above is from the Metrovino menu, where we made it Novo Fogo Silver cachaça and Ninkasi IPA.

Harvey Weissbanger

weissbanger2

1 oz Galliano L’Autentico
2 oz orange juice
6 oz quality wheat beer
orange peel, for garnish

Build in an ice-filled collins glass and give a gentle stir. Garnish with an orange peel. Any good wheat beer can work in this drink, though full-flavored ones work best.

This is a variation on the Harvey Wallbanger and is a staple on the Metrovino brunch menu.
