In search of (rarer) liquid refreshments
A port wine fancier (with a serious sweet tooth), I'm looking to broaden my wine-horizons a little. Does anyone know where I could find:
A good Brazilian Caipirinha cocktail
Okay, the last one isn't wine - but I'd love to try it anyway...! Thanks in advance for any/all leads...!
I love Madeira, but it can be a bit tricky to find. Try Astor Wines (4th & Lafayette); they have a great selection, and I'm sure they have other good sweet options as well.
And if you're into sweet: Ice wine, some proseccos, Sauternes, some Rieslings, some Vouvrays and Chenin Blancs are all good options.
i've always been pretty happy with the caipirinhas at esperanto and their related bar (the name escapes me now...), both on Ave C and 9th and 7th, respectively.
also i think they serve them a boca chica, on 1st and 1st. but i'm by no means a brazilian cocktail expert.
i think i remember seeing a muscat wine on the menu at SRO (single room occupancy), a very hard to find tiny bar in hell's kitchen.
uh...sorry not to be of better help...
