Passion Fruit Caipirinha

I had almost almost forgotten about my love affair with passion fruit that's a lie. I had a passion fruit macaron about a month ago, until Saturday night, when I took a sip of my tropical fruit-laced caipirinha, the Brazilian national cocktail, at dinner and felt a familiar hug around my taste buds. Something about the tropics, man. They do something to me. I took it upon myself to recreate the cocktail in my own kitchen, give or take a few ingredients. The caipirinha's main ingredient is cachaça, a liquor made from fermented sugarcane juice, that really packs a punch. I am currently on the tail end of my cachaça buzz (thanks to another, bar-made caipirinha I had at dinner tonight) and will most probably have to make some major edits before posting this. My homemade version was very well-received and will probably make an appearance at future events. Buzzed blogging. I highly recommend it.
