Watermelon Caipisake Shots (Caipisakê de Melancia)
A Brazilian-Japanese drink made from mashed watermeon and sake. A must have for summer parties!
- 1 cup seedless watermelon peeled and cut into small pieces
- 2-3 tablespoons sugar brown or crystalized
- Crushed ice
- 4 tablespoons sake
Place watermelon pieces and sugar into a measuring pitcher or 8-ounce glass. Mash the two ingredients together using a pastle or a wooden spoon. Stir in the sake. Pour caipisake into 8 shot glasses that have been 1/3 filled with crushed ice ahead of time, or leave caipisake into an 8-ouce glass if you are making and serving in it (in this case, stir in 1/3 cup of crushed ice). Cheers! YIELD: 1 (8 oz) glass or 8 mini shots.
