Caipirinha created by Diana Yen

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

ingredients

directions

  • Cut the lime in quarters then cut them crosswise.
  • Put lime and sugar in a tall glass and mash with a pestle (or a wood spoon, rolling pin, etc).
  • Add the same amount of liquor on the lime juice and stirr.
  • Add ice and stirr again.
  • 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.
  • Great trick at parties.

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

    the ratios here have a little less lime and sugar to the cachaca. That's pretty nice. Recommend Turbinado sugar, which you can get a good deal on at Trader Joe's.
