The Rio Olympics are just around the corner (August 5th  – 21st ) and some top London restaurants will be serving celebratory Caipirinhas as a salutation to Brazilians and their zingy national drink… So grab your partner and celebrate a like a Brazilian in the lead up to the Olympics, or perhaps watch with a Caipirinha in hand.

Caipirinha with a twist at Victory Mansion

Victory Mansion, Dalston’s quirkiest bar, will be serving this classic cocktail with a little twist. These guys are too fun and original to serve this without added pizazz. This time it’ll be with the addition of Star Anise, Cardamom and Apricot Syrup that makes this cultural cocktail more of a sophisticated swill. Of course with the addition of Le Blon Cachaça and fresh lime, this is still a Caipirinha – but a Flor Damasco Caipirinha – an (Apricot Flower) delight. (£7)
