Ipanema | Cocktail

  • a few spoons of crushed ice
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 bar spoons brown
  • Cane sugar
  • 3-4 cl passion fruit juice
  • Ginger ale (to fill up)

This is how the Ipanema cocktail is prepared:

The first step is to cut the limes into quarters with a knife. The two ends of the lime should be removed beforehand, as they contain bitter substances that can affect the taste of the cocktail. Since the limes are used unpeeled, you should look for qualitative limes (which are unsprayed and untreated) when buying them. The lime quarters are placed in a glass with the sugar (in Brazil they use white cane sugar, but this is often not so easy to get in Germany, so it also does brown cane sugar) and passion fruit juice, crushed and left to stand for about 2 minutes (so that the aroma can fully develop), optimally the sugar should dissolve completely. After the glass has been filled with ice (to just below the rim), it is topped up with ginger ale. The Ipanema is served with a thick straw.', 'The recipe of the cocktail Ipanema is based on that of the Caipirinha. The Ipanema is, so to speak, the non-alcoholic version of the Caipirinha. Sometimes this cocktail is also called Joana.
