Brazilian Capirinha Mocktail

Though we don’t consume alcohol at home, the thought of a cold drink on Friday evening appeals to me very much. And I think not consuming alcohol shouldn’t limit our joys. We should still be able to welcome the weekend with a cold drink in hand.. relaxing.. with our feet up.. we just made it through the week.. and TGIF right!!!


Recipe :

In a bowl muddle pineapple chunks, mint, and lemon juice. All to taste. How tart or zesty you want it. Spoon this in to a glass.

Pour some sugar syrup, top with some pineapple juice. Mix. This mixture should make half your glass. .

Fill the rest of the glass with ice cubes and pour soda or alcohol. Place a sprig of mint and finish with a pineapple wedge. Serve cold..

Note :

So these caipirinha’s I think are made with white rum or vodka. If that floats your boat, go ahead. I am sure it’ll be great too..


And that’s Friday!!

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
