DIRECTIONS

  • In a highball glass, muddle the jalapeño pepper with the sugar and lime. The jalapeño seeds may be added back in to taste, but will make the cocktail hotter. Fill the glass with ice, then fill the glass with cachaca, and stir up from the bottom or shake to mix.
  • Here's how you "muddle" ingredients for a cocktail:.
  • Place ingredients into an old fashioned glass, small bowl or mixing glass.
  • If using the glass, wrap a towel around it, in case it breaks.
  • Using a wooden muddler or back of a spoon, crush ingredients against the sides and bottom.
  • Mix so all ingredients are well married.
  • Prepare your cocktail.
  • Tips:
  • A mortar and pestle may be used when making a lot of drinks.
  • Always use the freshest ingredients.
  • Wood will not scratch your glass.
