Myriad View 's sizzling summer Caipirinha, a little bit of Rio from P.E.Island

A nurse from Manitoba and a doctor from England emigrated to this island to make the most of Canada's sunniest spot and their love of gardening.  They quickly immersed themselves in the culture of their adopted home.  Every celebration, every gathering would involve a refreshment of homemade shine. Paul and Angela Berrow set out to provide this bit of the islands heritage to a wider audience.

 

Caipirinha

With a stunning view of Rollo Bay from their home, gardens and distillery, Angela has a muse to inspire her creativity at the still.  Myriad View started by producing the island's favorite spirit, moonshine or "Shine".  Today they offer a selection of the islands favorite spirit, rum, gin, vodka and whisky.  Pastis is a specialty product we hope they continue.

"This recipe really does bring out the flavour of our Shine."

~ 2 or 3 lime wedges, cut in 1/2
~ 2 tsp Turbinado sugar (we substituted 1tsp Xylitol)
~ 2 ounces Strait Shine

Muddle the sugar and lime wedges together in an old fashioned glass until the sugar is dissolved and the lime juice is released.  Fill the glass with ice and pour in the Strait Shine. Stir briefly.
