Mandarin and Pink Peppercorn Caipirinha

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 8 people

"This is a drink found in good bars and also one you'd knock up for friends at dinner parties," says Luke Burgess. "It's the same principle as the classic Caipirinha, muddled on ice. It's a super-easy drink to prepare and the acidity gets the appetite going." 

  • 8 mandarins, peeled, coarsely chopped, seeds discarded
  • 2 tsp pink peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp rapadura sugar
  • 480 ml aged cachaça
  • Crushed ice, to serve
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges
01   Muddle mandarin and pink peppercorns in a large jug until crushed and juices are released, then stir in rapadura sugar, cachaça and crushed ice. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Season with lime juice to taste and serve.
