Drinks on Me: Caipirinha’s (Alcoholic)

[ 0 ] February 10, 2009 |


1 lime (quartered)
1 tbsp. sugar
1 shot of cachaca
1/2 cup ice cubes with water

In the bottom of a glass, line with lime and sugar; using a wooden spoon smash the limes. Pour in the cachaca and ice; stir well; Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: This drink reminds us of summer and of course, Brazil. What a wonderful place?! (*sun, beautiful people, Caipirinha’s…) Caipirinha’s are the official national cocktail of Brazil and is made with Cachaca which is the most common distilled alcoholic beverage in Brazil (*It is made from sugarcane just like rum…) Enjoy today’s cocktail on us Brazilian style…;-)
