Caipirinha

caipirinha-brazil-cachaca-lime-drink

Caipirinha is a refreshing and easy to make drink from my home-country: Brazil!

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ cup cachaça (Brazilian spirit)
  • ¼ cup spring water
  • Ice cubes

Directions:

In a large cup add the slices of lime and the sugar. Muddle the mixtures until well incorporated. It should look like a paste.
Add the cachaça, and water and stir. Add some ice cubes and serve it immediately.

Notes:

This is the signature drink from Brazil! For me, it tastes like a warm day at the beach!

You can usually find cachaça at large liquor stores in the US, but if you are having a hard time finding it you can use vodka or rum instead.
