It may be September, but the weather is still hot, which means we’re whipping up one more round of refreshing summer cocktails. Whether or not you’re hosting friends for a Labor Day soirée this evening, we highly suggest making a batch of the watermelon caipirinhas from N.Y.C.-based restaurant La Marina. The fresh pressed watermelon juice in this four-ingredient recipe is the perfect match for cachaca, a Brazilian spirit derived from sugarcane juice. The pro tip? A squeeze of fresh lime keeps the cocktail from becoming too sweet. Enjoy a round while soaking up the last of the summer sun, or make it the signature cocktail at your backyard fête. Read on below for the recipe.
