Drink DuJour: Smoked Pumpkin Caipirinha

Here’s the perfect Thanksgiving cocktail recipe to accompany your delicious meal

Notorious for offering out-of-the-box dishes with Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian influences, it’s no surprise that SushiSamba’s extensive spirits menu includes an unconventional twist on Brazil’s national cocktail.

“Building from the energy of our classic Brazilian Caipirinha, we took inspiration from the trending power of smoky Mezcal and the season’s most traditional, most celebrated flavor: pumpkin,” said Beverage Director Craig Tabandera.

Wow guests with this flavorful brew, perfect for autumn, to help wash down your Thanksgiving feast. Cheers!
