I invented this drink for a Licor 43 competition, May 2014. Brazil is one of Licor 43's biggest markets so i made a Brazilian style cocktail to celebrate Licor 43's success in Brazil.
I served the cocktail with a food pairing of a traditional Brazilian dish called Moqueca. Skewered King Prawns marinated overnight in a Tomato, Coconut, Lime, and Chilli Sauce.
30ml Licor 43
25ml Germana 2yr CachaÃ§a
30ml Lychee Juice
20ml Coconut Water
25ml Lime Juice
1 Whole Vanilla Pod
Orange Peel strip
Add first 5 ingredients to a shaker full of ice. Shake well and strain into rocks glass full of cubed ice.
Insert Vanilla pod and Orange Peel into glass and grind black pepper onto the surface of the drink.
