Caipirinha Couture

The caipirinha—that Brazilian drink made with sugar, cachaça, and muddled limes and served on the rocks—has been divinely reimagined at the perennial hot spot Sushi Leblon. The still-buzzing 20-year-old restaurant makes the drink with ingredients such as passion fruit, strawberries, vodka, even sake. The mix of the moment is the lychee caipirinha: Absolut, sake, vanilla, and whole lychees. Superb. At 256 Rua Dias Ferreira; 55-21/2512-7830 or 55-21/2274-1342.
