A Brazilian Margarita

Looking to change up a traditional Margarita?  Here is a recipe using Cachaca instead of Taquila.   If you haven’t had Cachaca, it tastes somewhere between Taquila and Rum.  Use a middle brand or better Cachaca (same reason as tequila, the cheap stuff will punish you later).   I prefer (and can only seem to find LeBlon)


1.5 ounces LeBlon Cachaca

1 ounce Triple Sec (or Cointreau)

1/2 ounce simple syrup

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice



  1. Rim a margarita glass with salt.  You can use a lime wedge and then roll it in salt or I found corn syrup and salt actually was more stable and nicer to drink from.  Yes, I made a second one for research purposes.
    This one I rimmed using only lime and salt

    This was one with corn syrup and salt.  Much improved.  The salt actually stayed and there was no sweetness that came through.
  2. Mix all ingredients and add ice into a shaker
  3. Strain into salt rimmed glass and enjoy!  I chose to enjoy mine with Taquitos from Trader Joes and a nice Caprese salad. wp-1473106110873.jpg
