Mason's Olympic Refresher

This recipe is courtesy of Mason Bar in the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. Their mixologists have created a Caipirinha-inspired cocktail to sip while watching the global games from August 5-21. “In the spirit of competition and with all eyes on Brazil, Loews Hotels is celebrating the Rio games with a twist on the host country’s Caipirinha that reflect the distinctiveness of our destinations,” The “Framboesa Caipirinha” combines the tropical flavors of Brazil with fresh Tennessee raspberries. “Framboesa” is Portuguese for “raspberry.” You can find cachaca at most liquor stores around town.
