It’s been 72 hours, 30 minutes, and 12 seconds since I’ve had my feet in the white sand of Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro.  It was a whirlwind of a trip that has left me craving warm summer days, fresh fruit, and frosty cocktails. The one fruity concoction that sent my taste buds into a furry was the passion fruit caiparinha, a take on the traditional Brazilian beverage.

Here’s how to make it at home:

1 Passion Fruit

1/2 lime

2 tb of sugar (yes, for each beverage)

Lots of cachça (a Brazilian liquor)


Mint leaves for garnish

Mix them all together in a cocktail shaker, pour into a rock glass and be whisked away to steamy Rio. Can I join you?

I’m all about presentation: this goes for everything from setting up an Instagram shot (if your framing isn't perfect, I'll snatch that iPhone right out of your hands), to an everyday outfit amped up with a wicked heel or pair of statement earring I've 'smithed myself. My maxed-out schedule doesn’t stop me from squeezing dinner with friends – did I mention I’m an aspiring foodie? -- between bootcamp classes, goldsmithing, and planning my next trip.
