Cucumber Basil Caipirinha

This is not a traditional caipirinha, but a Summer inspired refreshing drink based on the Brazilian classic. Lemon basil is an amazingly refreshing herb, which you can smell almost a mile away! Cucumber is cooling and calms down the acidity from the lemon and lime juice quite a bit. You can adjust the sugar as necessary for any dietary restrictions, or use honey or agave instead.

1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
2 inches peeled cucumber, grated
2 ounces cachaça (or rum)
4 basil leaves (preferably lemon basil)
Ice

Combine the lemon juice, lime juice, sugar, and cucumber in a martini shaker, including the lime peels. Using a pestle or a wooden spoon, grind the lime skins with the juices and the sugar well. Add the cachaça, basil, and some ice. Cover and shake vigorously. Divide among two small cocktail glasses and garnish with a slice of cucumber and some basil.
