      To tell you the truth, I wasn't really expecting to like this drink, as I had one drink with cachaca before and didn't care for it. Let me tell you, I was wrong! Loved it! I don't know if it was the sugar or the lime (but probably the lime), but I so enjoyed this. Nice and refreshing in the 90 degree weather we've been having. This is what I will be using my bottle of cachaca for!! LOL Made for ZWT-7

      this is one of my favorite drinks! i have to special order the cachaca , the brand name is pitu, but it is well worth it, this is refreshing and potent. the trick is to mash the sugar into the lime with a spoon, add the cachaca and then add the ice and lots of it.

      Rita, thank you for one MORE great cocktail recipe! You're gonna think I'm a lush... Made this as written but without the fruit. It's exactly how I remembered my first Caipirinha, which I had on a business trip while sitting at the bar at "Larios on the Beach" in South Beach. They go down so nice and easy, but soooo strong. The bartender almost had to walk me back to my hotel... LOL! But I digress... this drink was amazing and was the perfect complement to a warm and muggy sunset.
