Brazilian national drink. You can change limes for kiwis, pineapple or passion fruit, or mix them, but you may cut on sugar.

Excellent recipe! Add a spoon of brown sugar to give the cocktail an extra flavour boost, or try some fruity caipirinha alternatives.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the lime in quarters then cut them crosswise.
  2. Put lime and sugar in a tall glass and mash with a pestle (or a wood spoon, rolling pin, etc).
  3. Add the same amount of liquor on the lime juice and stirr.
  4. Add ice and stirr again.
  5. Here in Brazil, the guys that sell it at the beach put another glass upside down over it, hold both with one hand and shake.
  6. Great trick at parties.
