We've reached the part of the year in which we're only coping with this lack of sunshine by yearning for anything even slightly vacation-oriented. While NYC unfortunately remains frigid and windy, we constantly find ourselves Googling warm weather destinations and online shopping for sandals, tanks, and breezy mini-dresses. Thus, enter the Key Lime and Coconut Caipirinha cocktail. Combining beachy tastes like sweet coconut and tangy lime, this beverage enables us to keep imagining ourselves pool-side in 80-degree weather beneath a stylish cabana. And lucky for us, this drink is impossibly easy to make with only a few steps and ingredients.

2 oz. Cabana Cachaça

1 tbsp. shredded coconut

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1 lime, quartered
