We Found The Best Way To Enjoy Caipirinhas in NYC
Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail and one of the country’s greatest treasures, made with muddled lime, sugar, and cachaça- a sugar cane liquor that many associate with rum, but it’s not. Although Brazil’s boozy mascot has made its way onto cocktail menus globally, you should hit up a proper cachaçaria to understand the full gamut of options available. NYC’s West Village neighborhood is now home to the city’s first Caipirinha Bar, Berimbau Brazilian Kitchen. Located at 43 Carmine Street, the restaurant recently went through a revamp with an entirely new food and beverage menu for New Yorkers to experience the best of Brazil.
This cozy and stylish space features a Caipirinha Bar including a Walk Up/ To Go station for locals seeking masterfully created concoctions. Created by Mixologist and Head Bartender Danielle Espindola who has spent over 12 years fine-tuning the art of craft cocktails in Miami and NY means you’re going to enjoy the best caipirinhas in NYC.
Place an order for Passion Fruit Caipirinha Pouches and pair it with Pão de Queijo, Brazil’s popular gluten-free cheese bread. Or dine-in, sip the Classic, and try the Caipirinha Fest Flightthat features a collection of the best caipirinhas incorporating house-made syrups as well as fresh juices.
One is called Brazilian Passion, that involves fresh juices, lime, passion fruit, cachaça, and simple syrup. A spicy mashup of margarita and caipirinha is dubbed Caipirihita and is a must! It features fresh lime, cachaça and a jalapeno agave syrup. And a flavorful Mango caipirinha is made with mango puree, lime juice and cachaça.
To complete the Brazilian dining experience, we suggest ordering the Coxinha, involving chicken croquette, and catupiry cheese, the Pastel that highlights beef, spinach & ricotta, and heart of palm and of course Yuca Fries, served with a delicious house made sauce.
