Patrick Glennon is Executive Chef at the Brazilian themed Samba Grill at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Serve up one of these hand-crafted libations from the country that dances and sings the samba!

INGREDIENTS:

6 oz. Passion fruit juice
½ of a vanilla bean, split
8 oz. coconut milk
8 jiggers cachaça
ice

METHOD:

Combine all ingredients in your pitcher and stir vigorously. I like to serve this in sugar-rimmed glasses garnished with fresh lime wedges.
