This Thirsty Thursday, Chef Jon Ashton and Crystal Barkeepers Share Their Favorite Twists
It seems so simple. The Caipirinha, a classic South American cocktail (the national cocktail of Brazil, in fact), is simply a blend of cachaça, sugar, lime or lemon juice and crushed ice. And yet, as our Crystal Serenity barkeepers demonstrate in the video below, it’s open to interpretation and whichever flavor twists you fancy. This Thirsty Thursday, Crystal@Home presents several takes on this fresh, citrusy concoction, with some assistance from Chef Jon Ashton as we throw it back to one of the delicious Culinary Journeys we’ve taken.
Watch and let Crystal’s mixology masters inspire your creative juices with fresh grapes, berries, basil, pineapple, orange and cinnamon. Choose your favorite or try them all, as you perfect your Caipirinha technique to pair perfectly with the chimichurri steak featured on the upcoming episode of Sunday Cooking with Chef Jon Ashton. The process will not only be a delicious exercise in at-home creativity, but will also take you on a virtual journey through some of your favorite spots aboard this beautiful ship, from the South America-inspired Churrascaria to the stylish Cove Bar, Avenue Saloon, Trident Bar, Pulse and Palm Court.
From our home to yours, cheers!
