Dirigible, a cocktail for light-than-air travel

Aviation week continues with the Dirigible.

Travel by lighter-than-air Zeppelins never returned to its pre-World War II fashion. Yet a dirigible crossing the Atlantic at 70-mph between Europe and Brazil in the late ‘20s and ‘30s would have given passengers plenty of time for a cocktail for two. Something light and airy seems the ticket here.

3 mint leaves
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 1/2 ounces cachaca
1 ounces pineapple juice
Soda water

Muddle the mint and and simple syrup in a tall glass. Fill with ice cubes. Add cachaca and pineapple juice. Top with soda and stir well. Garnish with a spring of mint.
