This is a wonderful, fresh summertime drink. It is Brazilian in origin.

  2. Mash lime and sugar in each glass with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add 1/4 cup cachaca (or rum) and 1 Tbsp lemon juice to each glass, stirring to blend.
  4. Fill each glass with ice.

Delicious, STRONG and fun to drink. I will definitely make again. Found out in a magazine that this was "last year's" fashionable drink, but I don't care -- the recipe is too good to put aside for the sake of trendiness.
