Dripline & Kumquat Basil Caipirinha

The Pocket Cocktail

In this series, we pair one of our one-of-a-kind print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going. Today’s edition is an incredibly simple and delicious cocktail created by Prairie Rose of Bit By a Fox.


The Kumquat Basil Caipirinha

[inspired by our Dripline pocket square]

This springtime, garden party take on the caipirinha is perfect for evening sipping or brunch.

  • 2 oz Cachaça (Leblon is a solid choice)
  • 1/2 lime (cut into wedges)
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 2-3 basil leaves
  • 1 kumquat (1/2 for garnish)

In a mixing glass or tin, muddle the lime, sugar, basil and 1/2 kumquat. Add ice, pour in cachaça and stir. Transfer to a chilled old-fashioned glass and garnish with 1/2 kumquat.


Who might you enjoy this cocktail with?
