The Raspberry Caipirinha replaces the lime of the traditional Caipirinha with fresh raspberries, which are muddled with sugar and lime juice. It's a fantastic variation of Brazil's national drink that is full of flavor and perfect when fresh raspberries are in season. It can also be shaken after the muddling and strained into a cocktail glass for a refreshing raspberry-flavored Caipirini.
