LEOPARD’S LEAP CAIPIRINHA

LEOPARD’S LEAP CAIPIRINHA

We are very excited about next week’s Portuguese cooking classes hosted by J’Something and in anticipation, we have introduced the Caipirinha wine cocktail!

If you want to get technical, yes, the Caipirinha is Brazil’s ‘national’ drink, but the official language of Brazil is Portuguese. See! It is all quite clear!

Enjoy!
