Caipirinha, the Brazilian way.

Over the weekend we got together at Luisa’s place to celebrate Fernando’s birthday. Juan decided to show off some bartending skills, and so we brough the Brazilian Cachaca and limes over. He did an awesome job, and produced some really tough-to-beat Capirinha, the Brazilian way!

CAIPIRINHA

Ingredients:

1) 2 tsp sugar
2) 8 lime wedges (each wedge is 1/4 of a lime)
3) 2 1/2 ounce of Cachaca

Steps:

 

1) Pour some sugar in a plate, and turning a transparent glass upside down, coat the edges of the glass with sugar
2) Sprinkle the sugar into the lime wedges in a drinks mixer and add cachaca (shake well)
3) Add ice cubes to the glass
4) Pour the mixed Caiprinha into the glass

The raw materials… lime and cachaca:
