How To Prepare Brazilian Quentão

Quentão is a traditional Brazilian cocktail made with fresh ginger, red apples, sugar, cloves, cinnamon, water, and cachaça. To prepare it, ginger, apples, and sugar are first caramelized, then combined with cloves and cinnamon

Cachaça and water are then added to the combination and the whole thing is boiled slowly, and much of the alcohol evaporates during this process. The cocktail is then typically served in earthenware or ceramic mugs which are garnished with orange or lemon slices or peel

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 cup white sugar

3 cups water

¾ cup cubed fresh ginger root

2 limes, sliced

4 cinnamon sticks, broken in half

1 (750 milliliter) bottle cachaça

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE BRAZILIAN Quentão

Pour sugar into a 3-quart saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Cook while stirring gently until the sugar melts and turns golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Carefully and slowly pour in the water, stirring to dissolve the caramel. Add the ginger, lime, and cinnamon; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Pour in the cachaca, and cook until hot, about 5 minutes more. Strain before serving.
