Drink DuJour: The Caipirinha

Soak in the last bits of summer with this Brazilian-based cocktail

The Surf Lodge, an East End staple known to attract shaggy-haired surfers and glitzy young financiers alike, is in full swing and serving up signature cocktails to their beach-bound crowd. This summer’s drink of choice, the Caipirinha, was first introduced to the Montauk outpost seven years ago by Brazilian nightlife impresario and owner Jayma Cardoso and has since been served up in higher numbers every weekend.

“I am from Brazil. This is all we drink at the beach, so I thought it would be perfect at my second home, The Surf Lodge,” says Cardoso. 

Refreshing with a slight kick, the Caipirinha is the perfect complement to the ocean air and stunning sunsets. Check out the recipe below to enjoy Brazil’s national cocktail for yourself.
