1/1 Photo of Caipirinha
I saw this on The Amazing Race last night. Each team of two had to make a 100 of these drinks while visiting Brazil, as it is a very popular drink with the Brazilians. Remember to use a highball glass to pur the drink into.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 11. Wash limes and roll them on a counter or cutting board to loosen juices.
- 22. Cut limes into thin slices (approximately 1/8 inch thick).
- 33. Remove lime seeds (it’s easier to do it now, instead of having to remove them with your teeth).
- 44. Place unseeded lime slices into highball glass (we’ve also had Caipirinhas with the limes cut in quarters, and that works, too; it's a common practice to put both slices and quarters in a Caipirinha).
- 55. Pour two to three tablespoons (yes, you read that right; Brazilians like this drink sweet; of course, you can cut the sugar if that’s your preference!) over the limes, get a pestle and muddle sugar and limes (this means mush together) (pulp side up).
- 66. Don’t muddle the lime skin, which can be bitter.
- 77. Add 2 to 3 oz. Cachaça (to preference and taste) and stir well to be sure the sugar dissolves.
- 88. Add cracked ice and stir again. Serves one.
