Bar Lab's Spring Caipirinha

Tops Optional While Consuming

Gabe Orta at Miami Beach’s Bar Lab (professional consultants in the very serious world of mixology) has given Brazil’s national cocktail a floral infusion. The result is a drink that tastes as good as it smells — and the pain-free Brazilian you’ve been waiting for.
