Best Caipirinhas?

Now that the weather is warm.... seeking suggestions for finding my favorite summer cocktail.

  1. If you want to travel to Framingham, the bar at Brassille has excellent caipirinhas/

    1. I really enjoy them from the bar at Chez Henri (along with the cubano sandwich!)

      1. I've had some fantastic caipirinhas at Masa in the South End.

        1. Despite their inconstancies with service, Sabur in Somerville serves a good one.

            Sabur? Really? The Balko-serbo-croatian joint? What are they up to making Brazilian drinks!?

            If you are talking about slivovich, that's another story....

              Seriously, they make a good caprinha. Yes, even with their on-the-other-side-of-the-world menu. One of their bartenders is quite good. And one of them is quite the chess player too. The other two are insipid, flaky boors. But I digress.

              I simply cannot deal with the surly service though.

          2. Ole Grill in Inman Square does a nice one. I'm also happy to report that their food seems to have taken a big upturn on a recent visit. Much more creative and better executed than I remember from a couple of years ago. Glad I gave it another try. The back room is a very cool space to have dinner, too.

            1. Given the sizeable Brazilian population in the Boston area you would think there would be a truly authentic Brazilian restaurant/bar that would make a caipirinha to knock your socks off. I'm not sure if places like Midwest Grill can do that however. Any ideas? What's that Brazilian Soccer Bar that I always see driving into the Sumner Tunnel from the airport?

                As I said above, the Brazilin restaurant in Framingham, Brazzille, make an excellent one.

              2. Toro makes a really good one.

                1. I had a couple good ones at Bonfire last summer.

                  1. They don't have cacha├ža, so he uses Bacardi Limon, but Bruno (who's Brazilian) at Abe and Louie's makes an excellent version. He only works Saturdays, and I have a hard time ordering anything else when he's there.

                      Had a good version at Pops (South End) last night.
