caipirihinas--the Brazilian drink
- Tom Linton
I am trying to find a caipirinia (the Brazilian drink
made of cashasa) anywhere in Los Angeles.preferably on
the west side...can't find any Brazilian restaurant
that seves them...any ideas?
re: j gold
Interestingly enough, I wound up at Zabumba before
seeing this message..they serve a "caipirisco" (made
with fermented vodka)...beer and wine license only.
They cannot serve a caipirihina because of the cashasa.
The owner of Zabumba (when hearing my story) told me
the only place in L.A. to find a real caipirihina is at
the Canal Club on Venice and Pacific (former location
of Rebecca's)...a friend of mine also told me that Moho's, the bar at the "W" (formerly the Westwood
Marquis), also serves the drink.
